Difficult* – this tour does not have difficult hikes, but please note that Zacatecas is at al altitude of 2,440 meters above sea level, and Real de Catorce is at 2,728 meters, so if you suffer from altitude sickness please take this into account. Real de Catorce is also made up of rough cobbled streets with steep inclinces to get to some areas. The Willy’s Jeep tour involves riding in old jeeps along a steep edged dirt road and may be uncomfortable for those who don’t like heights – although it is included in the price of the tour, it is optional. The horse ride is up (then back down) a steep cobbled road.
Sun screen, hat, long sleeves/jacket and pants for evenings, comfortable walking shoes.
Warm during day time, cold in evenings, particularly in Real de Catorce.
