This is my second time visiting the sulfur springs and the first was almost 19 years ago as a child. This is a MUST DO activity for anyone. Much has changed since I last came such as the tight controls over which parts of the springs you can access. In addition, entrance fees have skyrocketed but for such a rare... More

After learning about the volcano by a very knowledgeable guide, we went down the street to the mud bath. I was reluctant at first to get in the mud, but I did it! My husband and I had fun. Try it, it's a once in a life time experience! Yes it's smelly, and very warm but you get used to... More

Very fun- got to enjoy an exfoliating mud bath and wash off in the diamond waterfall. Very refreshing and easy to do. Slightly gross to put the mud on at first and rinse with everyone in the same area, though I know it was kept clean. Very fun!

We arrived by boat into Soufriere which we understand was a much easier and quicker way to get to the Sulphur Springs compared to the rather arduous journey by road. You soon get used to the smell and previous comments have said that your attire is ruined by the baths but we did not find this to be the case.... More

If you're not into getting dirty, this isn't for you. You go into this wonderfully warm pool that has heated water from the volcano. You can get black and grey mud to rub all over yourself. They say it takes 15 years off your skin. It feels wonderful. You will be hassled by the locals selling jeweler and trinkets, just... More

I really does make you feel wonderful. I wish they packaged and sold this stuff, but I get why they probably don't... but I wish they did.

We started off with with a walk down the hill. At the bottom of the hill is a hot water pool in which a bunch of locals bath in daily. We then walked up another hill to get a great view of the volcano mud pits that bubble mud and steam. We then walked back to and headed down the... More

Had already been to the mud baths and wanted to see more of the volcano. It was really interesting to hear all about the geology and geothermal activity and to walk around the volcano. Get used to the sulphur smell - it was rank in places and the more my son made me laugh the more I breathed it in.... More
