Opal Mine

Tequisquiapan

You simply cannot leave Tequis without having visited the Minas de Ópalo de Tequisquiapan (Tequisquiapan Opal Mines), a fascinating spot where you literally get to chip away at the stone and become a miner for a day; incidentally, the best opals in the world are found right here.

The tour starts with a trip in a four-wheel drive to get to the mine, where you can collect stones and observe the majestic caves from which said precious mineral is extracted.

This tourist attraction in Querétaro is located just 10 minutes from Tequisquiapan, in the community of La Trinidad. After your tour of the mine, pay a visit to the Opal workshop and the gift shop. This is guaranteed to be one of the best travel experiences you will have during your visit to the “Magical Town”.

Tours begin at 10:00 am and last approximately two hours. On your way out, head into town to sample some delicious Queretero-style enchiladas or gorditas made with ground corn.
