We took in both the mud bath and the sulphur springs tour. The drive was lovely through the volcano. We saw a lot of plants and the rain forest on our way to this site.

Sounds incredible...a drive-thru volcano. But don't get your hopes up! It's just a smelly pile of ash.

My wife and I have been visiting all of America's National Parks. If you want the volcano experience try Hawaii! This is just a ripoff tour where you'll be hounded to buy local jewelry. if you do go the the volcano, skip the tour and plunge into the hot springs instead.

We took the tour of the volcano as part of the Joe Knows tour. It was a very busy attraction the day we visited. My wife really enjoyed the mud bath, all of her bug bites stopped itching. Great to get cover red head to toe with hot mud and then get rinsed with even hotter water. Make sure you... More

Thoroughly enjoyable experience. The catamaran ride from Rodney Bay to Soufriere provided great opportunity to view beautiful St. Lucia by sea. The staff were amazing, provided great information and a really fun time. I did not go in the volcano but opted for the mud bath instead. It was like being a kid again playing around in the mud and... More

We went to La Soufriere on a tour around the Island of St. Lucia. While the volcano part was interesting (not as impressive as Yellowstone), were the mud baths really fun. Enjoyed being covered from head to toe with volcanic mud and rinse of afterwards. Well worth a short stop.

Check out the drive-through volcano while on St. Lucia. It has great history and can still be seen letting off steam. Check out the Sulphur Springs and Mud Baths below it as well. Great experience!

The volcano was part of our excursion and the day started in Castries. It was a gorgeous drive from the capital city out to the volcano. Once you arrive the first thing that hits you is the smell - SULFUR. Very strong but not terribly unpleasant. We were shown an informative video about the volcano and how the Pitons were... More
