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.

The excursion itself is very short, you enter the mine, you see the stones and how they work, the nursery outside is beautiful and the landscape tb. It's worth going.

Finding those precious "bubbles" in the middle of the earth and rocks, is something that confirms the richness and miracle of life on our planet! Simply xq some "gas bubbles" got trapped and gave rise to semi-precious stones!!!!! Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!!!!!!
An absolute gem! ☺ If you are in Iguazu, a 30 min drive will bring you to a gem mine with a great curio shop. English speaking guides available. Simply amazing!
The mines were OK. It takes about 5 minutes to go through the mines. You are told about the different rocks originating from the mine by the guide. There are food shops and a touristy souvenir shop close by. If you want to get cheaper souvenirs, without the touristy inflation, try going just outside the mines, the locals sometimes have stalls and sell things cheaper.
