Latest Check-Ins

Didn’t enter. Price now 100 pesos per person and the tour guide makes it obvious they expect a tip too. Can’t do the mines without a guide it seems

We asked if it was possible to sleep in the quiet and isolate parking of the mines with our camper... and it was ! (We wanted to visit the next morning...)

An interesting visit to the quartz and amethyst mine with guide. 80pp, free <10yrs. You can also visit small Guarani myth park learning local mythology and small museum with very interesting fossils and stones (after a pirated film on creation of universe!). All included in mine entrance ticket. easy access, good parking. we found very interesting.

A little bit of a tourist-trap. Although sort of interesting.

Nice and interesting. Got a personal Guide for 160 Peso for 2 Person and it was worth it. We have seen a big Frog in the Caves/Minas. At the end hsrd selling Personal but verry okay. Snackbar top Tostados but be patient. Go early to the Minas, at Lunchtime there are bunches of Travel and Tourist Busses with looots of Tourists!
