Zacatecas is a small and walkable city and the mine tours can be reached after a eight block walk west from the
Centro Historico.   The
mine has two entrances open to the public: one near the terminal for the Teleferico on the
El Grillo and the other just west of the center of the city on Avenue Benito Juarez to Avenue Torreón and then
Avenue Antonio Davali Jaime.  

A good way to reach the mine tour is to combine it with a tour of the top of la Bufa and a ride on the
Teleferico or
cable car.  Reach the top of La Bufa by road, taxicab, or by the walking trail up the west side of the hill.  Ask at
the tourist office first about security and trail conditions concerning a walk to the top of the hill la Bufa.
