“Nice day trip out of San Miguel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

This was a fun place to visit- kinda like a ghost town, but with more people! It was fun to see the old mines and to hear people tell stories about what the town was like back in the old days!

“Pretty Amazing History”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2012

Visited Pozos with a guide from Colonial Tours Mexico (located in SMA). The trip is facinating when you have a knowledgeable guide. Freddie, our guide spoke excellent English and is thoroughly educcated on the area. He took us ot some of the abandoned mines/haciendas. It is obvious that this town was once extremely wealthy. Abandoned during the war for independence, much of it is fallen now, but a testament to the colonial period of silver in the area.

“A slower pace.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2010

San Miguel, Guanajuato, and Queretaro. Exciting and full of the energy that busy places offer. Mineral de pozos is a chill out town. A couple of hotels, a number of art galleries and craft shops, and a cool little bar off the main plaza makes for a nice getaway from the hustle and bustle. We spent a day and a half there and enjoyed walking the quiet streets, checking out the beautiful old church, and hanging for a while in the old bar at one end of the zocalo. There's no sign advertising the bar but it won't take you too long to find it! The bartender speaks no english but it didn't matter as we spent a pleasant hour watching an cheesy old Mexican cowboy/horror film and having a few beers with a really nice couple from Queretaro who were up for a quiet weekend. If you visit the town, you HAVE to visit the bar! Enjoy.
