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.

If you are in the Soufriere area, this is a must see. Your tour guide will give you ton of information about the volcano, and how it is monitored daily for another future eruption. You will go up and down a few flights of stairs until you are standing right over the bubbling, steaming mess !! The mineral baths looked... More

This is a must!! So much fun and such a unique experience. Join a pool of muddy water filled with tourists and lots of laughter. The mud actually feels good and I could almost swear my skin was smoother and softer!

It does cost $8.80 to get in and I believe $2 US for the mud baths. We passed on the baths but enjoyed the Volcano. You can see the boiling mud and steam and hear some great info from the guide about the whole area.

What an interesting visit we had! The mud baths were an extra and truly made our skin feel great. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and all proceeds go to support the local culture.

Did the combo, springs and baths. The entire area is pretty cool. I really pictured a volcano with magma I could look at! Lol! I know that's unreasonable, but that's what came to my mind when I heard "drive through volcano!" Anyway, cool experience, and great to hear about the natural history of the island.

We had a wicked day out on the catermaran which took us to Soufriere, and what a beautiful view. The weather was absolutely Glorious, having a bath in the sulfur springs was the highlight. I enjoyed the diamond falls and the botanical gardens, where I have never visited before.

On our recent Holland America Cruise of the Caribbean, we took an excursion to La Soufriere Drive-In Volcano. From a half mile away the sulfur smell was very evident. We then walked over a rock and wood pathway to a spot right over the bubbling mud springs. Our guide was very informative and super knowledgeable. This is a must-see attraction... More
