The other reviews are correct. Since the volcano is so underwhelming, we drove past it--even after paying. We saw long lines waiting for something and eventually went back to see what that was about. I'm sure it is a great geological site but there's just not much to see. There are some bubbling pits of hot muck. The hot springs... More

The tour guides here were really good and really knew their stuff. Interesting but very smelly. (sulpher).

My husband and I chose this over the mad bath and soon regretted as there wasn’t much to see and we were in and out in 5mins when we were told it would take 20mins.

The volcano was great, the road up is a bit treacherous ( the drop off the left side would definitely ruin your trip). It was cool to see the crater but the mud bath was the best. It was a little busy because everyone wanted to do it. The smell of sulfur is present but you get used to it... More

I visited the volcano as part of our Island Man tour. It's really a crater however it is well worth a visit. The smell of sulphur in the air can be a tad sickening. Top tip bring a dark coloured swimsuit to bathe in the mud pool. My son has very dry skin & he was impressed by the difference... More

The volcano was a great experience with the mud bath & sulpher springs. Def a must do on St. Lucia. Your tour guide should tell you all the history of the volcano & erruptions. Then take you down to the mud & hot baths. You get to rub mud all over including face (but not your hair). It is an... More

I rated it very good no just for the attraction itself, which is simply good, but the nearby town of Soufriere, the lush landscapes, driving to it make it a trip worthwhile. But, make sure you do the drive in a very comfortable bus, as the road is narrow, very curvy, and full of up and down hills. If you... More

No frills just a muddy sluice by the road but does what it promises. Hot sulphurous water and plenty of mud.

A must-see place in St. Lucia, especially if you're touring the Pitons. It was cool to see the geysers and observe how active the hot springs are. Be prepared for the intense sulfur smell. I didn't do the mud baths, but the members of my tour group who did smelled of sulfur the rest of the day. For real, you... More
