Visited this as part of a catamaran trip from Morgan Bay that took in Toraille waterfall and other sights, so it was quite a short visit. Worth seeing, though, and the guide (Suzette) was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Some walking up steps required to get the best view.

We went to Soufrière to visit the crater, as part of the catamaran cruise. It is filled with sulphur -smelling geyser that steam with flowing dark mud ... Very hot! Our tour guide explained the activity of the volcanoes and the fact that sulphur is not mined. We found mango trees, small waterfalls and bamboo ! It was a short... More

Don't believe what TripAdvisor say!!! We looked here for the address to vulcano, and it's definitely not there!!! We rented the car, and went to this address it says 0,5 miles from our hotel Royal By Rax Resort, when we came there was just same beach!!! The fact is that vulcano is in the other side of the island!!!

This was our least favorite attraction in St. Lucia. It gets so much hype, but we were underwhelmed. It's like a super-mini version of the geothermal attractions at Yellowstone National Park. Like most attractions in St. Lucia, a "guide" takes you on a little tour, of course expecting tip. We got used to this system during our trip, and several... More

It was a great adventure! Some what crowded but I would do it again. The bath is very hot but that is just the way I like it. It was very interesting to see the mud up close and to be able to bath in it.

A lot to learn about this volcano as there is a museum and you get a private tour guide. Very well organised! We went in the mud baths right below the volcano and boy was it hot!! Better to go later in the day about 4 when not so hot lol. Great experience driving into a volcano crater though!

A great experience. Parked rental car, paid admission price and was assigned a very pleasant guide to tour the volcano sulfur springs. Afterward, we indulged in the mud baths. Great fun watching everyone look like creatures from the black lagoon. Highly recommend especially if you have a car so you can take your time and relax.

If you've seen an active volcano, you can pass on this one. Yes the smell was pretty nasty but what do you expect from sulfur? The best part of this tour was the mud bath we took after. It is pretty primal but made for some great pics.

The brochure definitely said “Relax in the cool blue mineral waters of a natural waterfall”. Not if a cruise ship is in and your tour is behind them! Then it’s a wait on the path to the waterfall, followed by a long queue down the muddy steps to get into the pool cursing all those cruisers. The pool is churned... More

a fantastic one-of-a-kind experience. the guides were excellent, helpful with the process and a lot of fun. the energy around the sulphuric pools was really positive. a great alternative to sitting in a hotel jacuzzi. across the street, on the roadside, a bunch of vendors set up makeshift tents and sell local wares - like hot sauce, fried fish, shell...
