This was included in an excursion through Sandals. We didn't get to see much of the volcano, but got more than enough of the smell. ;) The mud bath was a fun and different experience. I would do this again, but would've liked to see more of the volcano and hear more facts about it.

Interesting to see, visit was part of a trip where you take a catamaran down to Soufriere, you see the Pitons, Waterfall, Botanical Gardens and the Drive In Volcano or visit the mud baths

This was an excursion offered by Royal Caribbean. The trip was taken on small tour bus that travelled the switchbacks up and down the mountains. We made several stops at locations offering beautiful views and an opportunity interact with the locals. You can haggle with the locals if there is any item you appreciate. The volcano portion is very interesting... More

The World's only drive in volcano. Worth a short trip to see the sulphur plumes (yes it smells but that is sulphur for you), mineral deposits, boiling mud pools and steaming water course. Can either visit the mud baths and cover yourself in the mud that, allegedly, is a tonic for the skin or have a short guided historical tour... More

I guess as far as Volcanoes go this one is unassuming. The more interesting thing about it is the tribe of people who live on it. The guide was very knowledgeable on everything which has any thing to do with it. Then there's the mud baths below which are heated by the Volcano. Overall it's an awesome experience. Ours was...

interesting little walk, smells terrible, but only time I've been in a volcano so that's something. It's worth seeing once.

What an exciting experience to see the earth at work. Yes, you will smell the sulfur. You will see the steam rising from boiling pools of mud, and the stain of the minerals painting the ground. We got here late, because we opted to drive ourselves, which is not the easiest choice. It looked like there were huge facilities for... More

Did this as part of a package it was very good. However most packages make you choose between the mud bath and the volcano.

felt great while in there since, our guide advised us that sulphur will be great for sinus problems and skin smoothness. I got to tell you that i suffer from sinus and while in there I was breathing with no trouble

Having never seem a volcano before I found this fascinating but the smell of sulphur was awful. You walk down & up lots of steps so not for those who have problems
