Wanda Mines, Wanda

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. A visit to Wanda Mines represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Wanda travel itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

  • It's not every day you have the opportunity to visit a mine gems in extraction activity. The tour is accompanied by a specialized guide that details the process of extraction and processing of stones. Is very worthwhile! In the end, of course, has a gift shop where you can buy trinkets and jewelry.

  • Not really much to see. Includes "free" (bad) meal, which turns out to paid if you want to drink anything ( 10 reais or 50 pesos for one Coke). Gifts are ridiculously overpriced too. Tourist trap. I do not recommend this place.
  • Facinan te!!!!!
  • Very nice guides and staff. Cool to see how amethyst is mined and it has a really nice crystal shop.
  • 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)
  • EXPECTACILAR !!
