An amazing experience. Not to commercial inclusive a guide who can tell you a lot about the mine and the winning of the salt. Loved it better then the salt Kathedral!!

Not far from the capital, Bogota, this Salt Mine is beautiful. You can not miss the water mirrors and the salt heart. The tour is guided and fun for all.
