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...

Although there is a guided tour, the guides have been taught what to say and have very little to say beyond this - therefore, if you really want to be informed, pick something up on this area before you leave for the island or once you've arrived. Some of what you will see is facinating in a mini-grandure sort of... More

This was a neat stop. The only part that wasn't desirable was the smell from the sulphur, so be prepared. It was really amazing to see the volcano with the steam coming out.

We came to St. Lucia on a cruise and booked a tour that included a visit to the drive-in volcano and I must say we found it to be a neat place to visit. Since we had several other places to visit, our guide made this a quick stop. I'm not sure how much it costs to get in since... More

This is a met foo. Drive through the still active volcano and stop at the sulphur springs. Lather yourself with the rich black or grey mud. Lay out on the rocks like a turtle and let the clay harden. From there, go submerge yourself in the hot tub with water flowing down from the volcano. Stay in no longer than... More

This was so much fun. Make sure you paint the volcano mud all over. The water is warm and so relaxing. We could have stayed there all day.
