We stopped here as a part of a larger excursion, but this was the most MEMORABLE part of our day. They ran almost completely out of mud when we were there, but it was still quite fun! The after-bath water IS very hot, 110 degrees to be exact, so some may not be able to take that, but I was... More

The sulfur springs was really fun. The water you dip in to is Extremely hot, but the mud and the experience was really fun. We got some great pictures and our skin felt amazing afterward!

This is quite a small natural wonder but worth doing for the experience. It does get crowded and is awkward and slippery to get around. You can cover yourself in either white or black mud and you are warned that the black can stain your bikini/swimsuit. I also saw it was very difficult to wash off your skin. The hot... More

Once you get past the scent of the sulphur, the sulphur springs at Soufriere, St. Lucia is truly an amazing site. It also has a very interesting history which should be documented for visitors to take away as a souvenir. The tale of this history however is only told through the informed tour guides on site and at the museum... More

Very cool experience. I would recommend it to anyone who is comfortable with discomfort. Be prepared to soak in very hot water, and to cake your body in mud. It's all part of the experience. Get there early to beat the big tourist groups who are making a longer trip from other parts of the island.

It was a fun experience to coat your skin with mud, however feel the water you must rinse off with before you start. The HOT temperature of the water helped a lot of people decide not to do the mud bath. It is not enjoyable like a hot tub and it was a little painful for me to dip down.... More

Very interesting geological site! The guides can provide basic information, but if you took middle school science you already know what they will tell you. The springs steam more after rain. The mud bath is very fun, and feels fantastic!

The mud bath awaits you. If you can get past the smell. It is an experience to endure. Our skin is baby soft as a result. You should try it today. St. Lucia has so many wonderful places like this.

This attraction is a tourist trap and the hot baths and mud bath reminded me of a sheep dip. With bus loads of tourists being herded into the baths in a snaking long line. Even though we had paid for the baths we opted not to use the ticket and left. The drive through volcano, we had driven through before... More

Unusual detour but go early in morning - large tours start showing up after 10 and place is not very large. We went when it opened at 9 AM.
