Very short but informative tour

Very short 10 min tour but it was cool to see the collapsed caldera with steam coming out and patches of boiling water.

We did just the tour and for 12 US dollars we had less than a ten minute "tour" of the volcano. It was cool to see and learn, but I found it very underwhelming. It is a must see stop, but I would have rather just drove up took a couple pictures and read the rest of the information on... More

We visited the volcano as part of a private tour we did. It's small and not much to see but we did it as it was recommended as part of the tour. I would say if you are going to see the landmarks keep this on your list, but don't expect too much, as there isn't much there to see.

This was a stop on our Cosol Tour on a very rainy day. A small area of about seven acres which you can approach with ease and just about drive up to. If you have been to Yellowstone you can pass this up. If you have never been to a place like this you should go. The entire area is... More

Drive in volcano because you can just drive past it and that's it. Interesting to see. We did not do the mud bath because we opted out.

We piad 10 bucks for 2 I think. The pool for a mud bath looked OK but we did not go there because it was another fee and we did not have the time. If you have never been to Yellowstone Park it is the same but maybe 2 or 3 acres of soft ground sulfur spouts. If you have... More

Wear a bathing suit you won't mind getting dirty because you will get DIRTY. another warning if you are allergic to sulfur do not go period. Being there having fun in muddy water and smearing mud on strangers couldn't... More

Before visiting St. Lucia, I have never heard about another Drive-In volcano. It is one of a kind experience. Do go and get the mud bath if you get a chance, you will not regret that. Sometimes it gets really crowded around here and you may stuck in traffic so be prepare.

We visited the Drive-In Volcano. The tour guide was interesting and knowledgeable about the volcano and the caldera it formed. Beware-many steps. We were there in the rain and steps were slippery. If you have knee problems, you may want to stay at the base of the stairs.
