Wanda Mines, Wanda

#6 of 28 in Sightseeing in Province of Misiones
Tourist Spot Mine
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.

  • Very nice experience, place with much history, you can visit mine and see the iodas containing the stones how are found in nature, and after the visit there is a place where you can buy all kinds of stones and biyuteri etc.

  • Honestly I think that it is a "forced" walk. An excuse to charge you 150 dollars and end up in a souvenir shop. The guide that we had was awful, in a moment I acoplé another group since they had a better explanations more cornered Guide (which was my group didn't know not to mention, I don't blame him... but if you become a tourist place, be cautious with these things). In my personal experience it is not worthwhile.

  • Especially the staff of the complex. from admission to discharge. all very attentive, know how to treat and care for the tourist. highlight the excellent attention of our guide sr, Adrian. It was a guided tour with many added details of someone who knows about the topic and who has worked with his own hands in the mines.

  • 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)
  • Carisimo
  • It could have a better presentation.
  • Too pricey for a tour with bad jokes and mystic facts about the energy of the crystals
