The Cerro Rico mine is one of the last fully-functional mines in Bolivia. As long as you are fit, healthy, and not claustrophobic in the slightest, you can climb down into the damp, dark chambers and experience what life is like for the miners. In exchange for being gawked at by tourists, you can bring the miners gifts of coca leaves and cigarettes.
Arrange a tour with your hostel/hotel and you will be picked up in a minibus. The entrance to the mine lies just outside the city and you must go with a guide
