While the mud pits down the road might be to some persons liking, the sulphur springs themselves are not memorable and the tour lasting only slighly longer than the memory of the place. No interesting volcano to see, just smelling some stinky springs you can't get close to.

An interesting experience however I am glad we went. It is a small area and we arrived as a tour group did which made it crowded.

Get past the smell of sulphur and make sure to get your whole body muddy and then wash off in the hot springs. be sure to bring you flip flops or water shoes and walking is rocky. Also be prepared if sun burn to gently rub the mud and then watch out as the hot springs are hot. But you... More

This was a steaming volcano. We took a tour and then did the mud bath and went in the natural 100 degree volcanic water. Skin is still softer after 3 days!

Very interesting geological site. The guide gave us a fairly good tour but seemed to be at times more interested in texting than talking...a new generaion , I guess.
