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

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

Place is nice and if you are interested in volcanos, geology...this is the right place to be...be carefull if you go for a swim in the mub bath, you'll definitely spoil your bath suit...so take an old one ;)

While the volcano itself is not much to see the springs and mud bath that spew from it were a real treat. Ignoring the sulfur smell (think Yellowstone Park) you dip into a warm bath fed... More

Interesting to see. Just a lot of hot steam coming out of the earth. The smell of rotten eggs was a special treat. But you get used to it quickly.

By taxi is $160.00 US but I would recommend Vaugh as your tour guide. Very knowledgeable. The fee is $8.00 US for the mud... More
