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.

  • Not every day visiting a gemstone mine. The tour includes a guide that explains the history of the place, the different types of stones and extraction methods, something new is learned. They show you the bare quarry and then mines inside. The tour ends in the shop of the mines, where find all type of articles echo with stones. They are not cheap, given the costs of extraction and production

  • Stroll to discover these mines to open heaven of quartz crystals, and other semi precious stones. At the exit, leave you in a shop to buy their products. A waged before entering, there are families that sell stones and handicrafts - maybe with an elavoracion more tosca-, buy them.

  • 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.
  • Uma estrutura incrível, guias bem preparados e cavernas lindas para se sentir conectado com o lugar! O preço é super acessível.
  • 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)
