The volcano was a great experience with the mud bath & sulpher springs. Def a must do on St. Lucia. Your tour guide should tell you all the history of the volcano & erruptions. Then take you down to the mud & hot baths. You get to rub mud all over including face (but not your hair). It is an... More

I rated it very good no just for the attraction itself, which is simply good, but the nearby town of Soufriere, the lush landscapes, driving to it make it a trip worthwhile. But, make sure you do the drive in a very comfortable bus, as the road is narrow, very curvy, and full of up and down hills. If you... More

No frills just a muddy sluice by the road but does what it promises. Hot sulphurous water and plenty of mud.

A must-see place in St. Lucia, especially if you're touring the Pitons. It was cool to see the geysers and observe how active the hot springs are. Be prepared for the intense sulfur smell. I didn't do the mud baths, but the members of my tour group who did smelled of sulfur the rest of the day. For real, you... More

Thankfully we were lucky to have awesome your guides and everyone who we met were extremely friendly and accommodating making the experience a whole lot better! The drive was long from Gros Islet but I have no complains as we were accompanied by really great people ! Love it and will do it again ! 😊🌸

We visited in July and even though we were expecting to see more of the volcano we had fun in the mud. My son looked no different to how he comes home from a Rugby match - the good thing was he washed off in the waterfall. As to the alleged healing properties who knows but we were up for... More

We didn't get to see much of the volcano, you drive in and you go straight into location where you put volcano mud on each other and then sit in mud pool to rinse off. It would be nice to get to see more of the volcano aspect of it as well. Don't get me wrong the mud bath was... More

It's name makes it sound as though you can drive up to a volcanic crater and then drive through but this is not so. As you drive along the road one side is where you go for the mud bath and further up the road there is an area(which is quite small) where you can see the sulpher pools and... More

This was included in an excursion through Sandals. We didn't get to see much of the volcano, but got more than enough of the smell. ;) The mud bath was a fun and different experience. I would do this again, but would've liked to see more of the volcano and hear more facts about it.

Interesting to see, visit was part of a trip where you take a catamaran down to Soufriere, you see the Pitons, Waterfall, Botanical Gardens and the Drive In Volcano or visit the mud baths
