  • 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.

  • Not worth it unless you have plenty of spare time

  • 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)

  • 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.
