This wasn't as good as advertised for us as we have been in New Zealand and the sulphur springs in that country are far superior to this one, we were only there about 15 minutes and the walk down was the strenuous part and the smell was very off putting, because of accidents in the past you were not allowed...

It was nice seeing this attraction but it is overrated. Once you finally get there, you will be out within an hour. It also smells pretty bad, as expected.

We liked it but we have been to other sulfur springs and mud baths so it was not novel. If you have the time, it would be worth it to visit.

The La Soufriere Drive-in Volcano is pretty awesome in that its an up and personal look into a force of nature. It helps put things into perspective for me and reminds me of how small I am in the scheme of the universe when faced with so much history and how old a place is. The volcano allows access to...

Unique experience.It may need to expand due to the large amount of visitors. The immersion in the hot water and mud bath is very exhilarating and teraputhic.

We were taken to the volcano and given th e option of a tour or going to the mud baths. We decided to experience the mud! You submerge yourself in hot water that can be as high as 100 degrees! Then you cover yourself in mud and stand baking in the sun until it dries, we got some great photos!... More

Felt like a million buck afterwards but how could you not after you survive the hot pool. I spent 30 min letting the mud dry and saw one other person get all the way down the steps. We also took the tour which was informative but short.

38 degrees means it won't burn you but it REALLY feels like it. It can be done and feels good afterwards.
