  • We stopped for 30 minutes to hop in the black water and then cover ourselves in sulphur smelling mud. It was a fun first time experience. Great for photos. But not worth doing again.  more »
  • It's a short 10 to 15 minutes tour. Anyone who has seen Rotorua or Taupo in NZ will find this quite basic. The lady who took the two of us around was very good.  more »

  • A must while visiting St Lucia. Drive through volcano with mud bath. Stinky but we'll worth h the experience. You need a good 2 hours here. Our taxi driver Lynoss dropped us at parking lot and we walked up to the volcano and did tour. Our guide Michelle was very informative and allowed us to spend time at various spots to view and take pictures. We looked through the different vendors there and bought a few trinkets. Walked back down to mud bath and stored our belongings, we had our bathing suits already on but there is change rooms there. Got wet in one of the five bathes and then got a thick coat of mud all over our bodies. Waited for about an half hour for the mud to dry, this helps your skin tighten to make you feel and look 10 years younger. It works a day later and my skin is still right.
  • The worlds only drive though volcano, and it is gifting with views of bubbling sulphur craters, a mud bath, and secret hot springs. The initial sulphur smell is very imposing but doesn't linger or diminish the overall experience.
