Anda: it seems like one could use "vaya" as a synonym

Are anda and vaya interchangeable when used to express surprise?

Hola Mary

You're right, anda and vaya are pretty much interchangeable. Vaya is normally a bit softer, I mean, when you're surprised but not massively. Anda can be used for any kind of surprise, and you'd change your intonation when you say it depending on how surprised you are. 

Saludos
