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.

  • It seemed to me that it is good to learn a little of the place. You will not change the life either go or not but okay. What if you charge 3 times over all what you sell! All more expensive than in other positions of other excursions!

  • We loved the Guide and enter the mines, they were very friendly and helpful and resolved all our doubts. With respect to the shop, sell stones extracted directly from the mine, if you're not understood I recommend that you do not buy unless it is price of trinket. It is not serious to sell stones such as for example a tourmaline whose price may number between 15 and 400 euros without weight carat... Sold per piece and tell you that it is first quality and give a certificate, but warranty is not any Gemological Laboratory jewelry, so you don't know what shopping, have you a maximum of 15-20 euros if you like something and so will be a souvenir and a memory. Anyway they are educated and worth seeing a mine inside.

  • Beautiful experience. For those who never were inside a mine. They can be seen as there are huge crystal clear bubbles of amethyst, quartz, agates basalt (volcanic wall). It is a walk of about 45 minutes with a guide who explains very well. Then there is a place to buy and there is also the possibility of having lunch in a restaurant with. The entrance to the mine circuit costs $80.

  • 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
