The volcano was very cool to see and the mud bath was awesome! Worth the money to experience this attraction!

Fun place to see where a volcano is. Steam still coming out and some bubbling mud pots. Smell is a bit bad but it was neat to see.

When I heard "drive in volcano" I didn't think it'd just look like a strip mine with 5 grey puddles.... and a horrid smell. Then again... I don't know much about volcanoes, so that could be my fault. It was nice to be able to say I did it, but I wouldn't ever go do it again. I don't know... More

We booked this excursion through Disney Cruise Lines. I was initially intrigued at the concept of a "Drive through volcano". We were escorted from the pier via air conditioned motor coach. We made a few stops along the way, including a scenic view of the Pitons for a great photo op, and a introduction to banana ketchup. We arrived to... More

We were a little unlucky as a number of cruises had arrived in port with everyone wanting to come here. We had the option of doing the mud bath, but decided against it due to the huge waiting line. The springs themselves were good, Quite large, not some tiny thing bubbling up from the ground. The guides were informative. My... More

Softest skin ever after the mud baths. Quite an experience. The hot springs took some getting use to but just listen to your guides and get right in.

We travelled to the volcano as part of a tour of the island. There is a steep set of stairs to see the volcano, but when you are there, a guide gives you a history of the volcano. There are over 4 areas where you can see smoke coming from the volcano. There is also a river near the bottom... More

If a volcano experience is on your bucket list...you can scratch it off here. Not your traditional "exploded" volcano, this one "imploded" leaving behind hot mineral baths and mud for your entertainment. Often crowded with tourist groups you can participate yourself or simply be amused by the chaos in front of you. You enter a dark muddy mineral bath pool... More
