Wanda Mines, Wanda
(3.3/5 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.

  • A beautiful mine both as open and inside. In this are amethysts of different shapes and colors as well as geodes and jades. They show us from the extraction to the making of jewelry. I love since I love mine

  • While it is an interesting place, involves a part of the geological development of this part of the continent along with the area of Minas Gerais and the mines of amethyst from the Department of Artigas in the Uruguay but continues to be an attraction of low-cost and educational; attention the little shops around the mine sold kiosk products at inflated prices.

  • Very cool tour, the guide was great, explained everything very well. The place is amazing, the tunnels where you can visit are really cool, everyone's in awe wondering how everything is possible, as nature is really spectacular. I found everything very organized, and the day we had a few people, so it was very quiet. In the end have little shops to buy gems and stones, could not resist, of course, and I bought a beautiful ring of amethyst, the cool thing is that it's taken away from her and they accept credit card.

  • 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
