Wanda Mines, Wanda

(3.4/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
Descend below the Earth's surface and enter a cavern of glittering gems at Wanda Mines. You can take a tour through the amethyst mines' tunnels, seeing and touching the sparkling stones, while your guide explains how they're mined and polished. Don't be surprised, however, if your guide tries hard to convince you to buy jewelry at the mines' gift shop. It's probably best to bypass the shop altogether, as some visitors claim fake jewelry made of glass instead of gemstones was sold to them there. Our Wanda tour planner makes visiting Wanda Mines and other Wanda attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • We went on tour with the Combo Iguassu, Leandro very nice driver. Was comfortable close the package with transportation, ticket and lunch. Not far from downtown, but not advise taking the car itself. Has a number of requirements that the Argentines charge us you never know ... I really enjoyed the ride, we were accompanied by Olga who told us the story of the rise to interesting facts about the mine. Then we went to a little shop with air conditioning, beautiful pieces but very expensive. Outside has another store with cheaper parts, but not so beautiful. The lunch was great. Buffet free, you just pay the drink (in real). Leave the 10:00 and back the 17:00. Thanks for the visit and lunch. Recommend.

  • The site is about 1:30 of Mouth is has easy access from the main road. The site is secure and has a lot of the geological formation of the area. The stones are beautiful and can play every one of them. The tour is done with a local guide who speaks portuñol real slow so we can understand everything. We go through tunnels and caves the formation of stones and their characteristics. At the end we are forwarded to the workshop where we observe quickly the treatment of stones and followed in the shop where we can buy finished stones. The site also has a circuit telling urban legends and folklore is a Museum of dinosaurs and fossils. There is also a huge buffet restaurant and the famous Argentine barbeque released.

  • It is very interesting to see how the precious stones are harvested inside the mine and processed afterwards. The entry price includes a tour through the mines with a guide. Furthermore a small exhibition of fossils and a small park that tells you something about common Guarani myths (the local Indigenous people) at the side of mine can be visited with the same entrance fee. But these side attractions are rather small but still nice. Everything closes at 17:00 (5pm)
  • It is really nice to see the mines and all kinds of things done with the minerals.
  • My first try at a post. I thought I hit all the stars. Sorry. 5 STARS can't wait to visit in March
  • It is very interesting very good explanation of the guides
