Mi nombre es Diego, me considero un explorador de mi hermoso y lindo México, y soy originario de Querétaro.

Desde hace algunos años me he apasionado por conocer la riqueza natural que me rodea aquí en Qro, conocer la gente, sus tradiciones y costumbres y claro, la rica comida de la region.

Me gusta platicarles acerca de los lugares fantásticos de mi estado, convivir, conocer gente, escuchar sus maravillosas aventuras. Me considero una persona honesta, sencilla y con valores.

To be clear, this experience is not for the faint of heart or body—Diego will carefully ask you about your fitness level and health concerns before the trip (in Spanish). That said, we are in our late 50s/ early 60s, from the US, and did just fine with climbing up and around working opal mines, complete with craggy rock and steep deeply-rutted dirt road (requiring a ride in 4x4 pickup truck). And I must say it was well worth the effort to learn from Diego, a fourth-generation miner, and Sandra, a university teacher assisting as translator (300 pesos well-spent), just how difficult and artful a venture this opal mining can be, as well as something uniting a community in ways we’d never expected to learn. The environment was spectacular and beautiful, with wide-open views. We loved seeing the miners’ equipment and religious altars, and got quite taken with the thrill of searching out (and finding) little bits of opal—clear, yellow, orange, red. We were also impressed by observing Diego’s father at work polishing stones and sharing gorgeous opals and pieces of jewelry. Mostly, we valued Diego’s generous spirit and commitment to this art form. He picked us up in Querétaro (another 300 pesos well-spent) and treated us to a delicious breakfast at a stand in Tequisquipan. We loved hearing about his life and work, and from him and Sandra both, the challenges facing this way of life. If you can handle the physical exertion, and love to learn, we would very highly recommend this opal mining experience! Thank you!

La experiencia estuvo en verdad excelente. Diego es un muy buen guía que explicó muy bien cómo funciona el proceso de la minería de ópalo. La mina que visitamos es impresionante; encontramos varias piedras de ópalo de calidad distinta y el tour nos dio una muy buena idea de cómo funciona la mina y qué importancia tiene para la región. ¡Es una experiencia muy, pero muy recomendable!

Our experience with Diego left us wanting to do more excursions with him! It was better than expected! Before the event even began Diego was amazing with his communication, answering all of our questions! He and his co-excursionista, Janis, met us in Querétaro and drove us all the way to the Opal mines. He drove us up to the mines in his 4x4 truck where we hiked all around them and learned about their history and witnessed Diego’s using the pick ax to break off pieces and show us the differences in quality of the different opals. He has a trained eye to recognize all that we are not able to. His love for the mines is obvious as he explains it all to us. We came to a place at the mines where he lit a fire and we ate delicious gorditas and quesadillas that his aunt had prepared. We also shared his cafe de olla and listened to a historical account of his uncle’s experience in the mines. On our way back to town Diego led us through an (optional) hike by a fresh spring where he bushwhacked our way through a trail adorned with diverse flora. Our friends were huge grasshoppers showing off and a few caterpillars that they warned would not be so friendly if touched. Janis was our translator and she helped make our adventure all the merrier! She never missed a beat in translating every word Diego spoke as well as adding lively fun and humor to our experience. On the way home we were surprised with an extra! We stopped and shared artisan crafted beers in a charming brewery with amazing murals and old hand painted VW’s. The conversation with Diego and Janis was stimulating and just amazing fun! The perfect finale to our adventure before returning to Querétaro! We will definitely do many more adventures with Diego and Janis in the future! We feel that we’ve not only gained the experience they shared with us but also two amazing friends!

This was a phenomenal excursion! Diego's family has been mining opals for decades and he can help you to find the most beautiful ones fairly easily. We loved his history and care for this gorgeous area and natural resource. We felt very privileged to be on this tour with him. We loved searching for yellow, orange, pigeon's blood, and rainbow (mermaid's) opals. It was phenomenal to learn about the conditions and also the millions of years it takes to create such a beautiful stone in nature. Wow! Also, we enjoy meeting Sandra (the English Translator) and her two Mexican hairless dogs (Xolo). We sat for a good hour around the fire while Diego heated our tortillas in the opal mine. It was so much fun sharing stories and using our broken Spanish to translate. Later, Diego drove us into town to hike up to a fresh water cistern for the best water we've ever tasted, then to his Father's workshop to see the crafting of the stones, including opals, into jewelry. We also got to enjoy some pulque from a local crafter while on our way back into town. Delicious! All in all, it was a memorable, magnificent tour that you don't want to miss. I would suggest wearing a hat, having good hiking boots and bringing a hiking stick or nordic walking pole as the ground is very uneven and you don't want to fall on these sharp rocks. One other note is that the cost for English translation ($300 pesos) is not included in the price even though the excursion is listed in English. Also, transportation to the site is also not included ($300 pesos each from centro by shuttle OR $67 pesos from the central bus station + $75 pesos each for the taxi). Diego offers other hiking excursions through the sierras that we will be sure to look into. It's a very magical area of Mexico to explore.

Excelente excursión, la verdad me quedo sorprendía, y el Diego es un excelente guia, muy personalizado todo. Aprendimos muchas cosas y ese énfasis en cuidar y proteger el medio ambiente nos agradó mucho, sin duda volveríamos a tomar el tour pero ahora si más a fondo, y sobre el lugar, las fotos creo se quedan cortas a lo impresionante que es la zona, y pues puedes traerte el ópalo que logres encontrar eso lo hace aún más increíble! Sin duda súper recomendado 😁
