Es una estafa. Lo llevan a dar en carro una vuelta por la ciudad y luego lo llevan a un comercio de esmeraldas a ver un mini museo. Uno podría visitar solo sin ningún costo.

This is a nice place to visit to learn some History as to how Emeralds are extracted from the mines of Colombia, how these precious stones compare to other Emerald-producing countries, and why the Colombian Emeralds rate and have rated as the most beautiful on the planet for years on end. They also have in-house working shops, where the visitor can appreciate the elaborate and complex work it takes before the Emeralds can be displayed in store windows for sale... The Sales Manager, Maria Isabel Velazquez truly does a good job explaining what goes on behind stage at this Museum and Factory, not to mention, very nice and kind to visitors...And last but not least, we had the privilege to meet one the owners out of three brothers: Luis Eduardo Diaz whose courtesy and kindness was second-to-none.
