And they need their photo taken to prove they actually covered themselves in mud. Dozens of people took advantage of the opportunity. It is recommended that you limit your time because of the temperature of the mud and water...nearly 102 degrees. All kinds of promises are made...you will look years younger, you will feel better, your health will improve, your... More

The drive-in volcano was great you actually smelled the Sulfur and saw the steam escaping fro the craters. When can you get this close to a volcano!

The Soufriere Drive-in Volcano was amazing. It was hard to wrap your head around standing that close to the mouth of a volcano but there we were. If you observe the volcano make sure to take advantage of the mud bath and hot springs. An all around fantastic experience.

A very unique experience, driving into a volcano... how could we miss that? The guides take you on a very short walk and talk. You look over at the bubbling lava and you're done. If you want to, the mud baths are a relaxing, interesting experience. But you'll smell the sulfur on you for the rest of the day. It's... More

It depends on where are you staying but the drive from Rodney Bay to.this volcano really wasn't worth it. Weavy road....long drive to tour that last 10.minutes costing 12$ (tour plus bath,.bath only is 5$) Bath was great though and it really saved the experience. Tour guide was really amazing enthusiastic guy and we learnt something but I couldn't believe... More

My family and I visited the volcano, and we really liked it. You can see the boiling lava, the mud, water and steam. You can also smell the sulphur in the aire. It's very interesting when you realize where you are. Our guide was very friendly and told us many interesting information of the place.

We went to the volcano as part of a tour of the south of the island, and it was our favorite part. Don't go expecting Yellowstone - this is a small attraction on a smallish island. But our guide was knowledgeable and friendly, and the sights, sounds, and, yes, smells, were very cool, and we left wanting more.

To be entirely honest, we passed through here on a cruise ship excursion. It was the island highlights, and we spent no more than 10 minutes here. We literally got off the bus, took some pictures in front of the boiling lava, and left. Now I'm sure this attraction is was more neat than we had a chance to see.... More

The drive in volcano in St Lucia is an absolute must see for visitors to the island. Dipping in the warm springs is a wonderful experience and very relaxing. Careful... the water can get very hot during the daytime.
