Expect the unexpected, its a great experience. Try to get a tour guide inside the mine. Probably 2.5 hour isn’t enough time to admire the whole beauty of the Salt Mine, so I recommend spend more that 3 hours Also I highly recommend having lunch at one of Zipaquira best Asados de Carne restaurant, La Tejedora And you can`t missed the visit to Museo Del Bachillerato on downtown Zipaquira, where the famous writer Gabriel Garcia Marquez spend part of his life attending to High School.
Our driver was the BEST, unfortunately I do not remember his name, but he taught us A LOT about the everyday life in Colombia and its history. Our guide however, I didn’t even notice he was riding in our same car. I think I heard his voice like 4 times total.
Beautiful on so many levels! We will visit this site on our return trip to Colombia.
It was a very nice visit and the video of the histort was great.
Really well organized, thanks for the amazing experience
