I never imagined I would actually be sitting in a volcano basin, but I was. The heat is nearly unbearable at first, but worth every moment of discomfort. It was a blast painting each other with the volcanic mud and seeing everyone else once we were all painted. The mud definitely had a soothing, softening effect on the skin and... More

We visited this spot during a cruise line-sponsored tour, which was billed as a "volcano tour." I didn’t expect geysers of magma (or any magma at all), but I expected more than what we saw. To me, it wasn’t much more than an excavated hillside with some bubbling mud and steam. The whole area reeked of sulfur (hence the name... More

Neat to see, doesn't take much time to take it all in. Plan to dispose of the clothes you wear as smell is difficult to remove.

The Sulphur Springs and mud bath is one of those things you just have to do whilst in St. Lucia. Where else in the world can you "drive in" to a volcano crater? The volcano itself bubble water not lava and part of it has collapsed so it's not obvious that you are in one. Apart from the bubbling there... More

Not a full day trip but worth a visit if you combine it with Morne Coubaril and Diamond Falls. An interesting talk, smelly. Lots of stairs so be aware if you struggle with them. Avoid Thursdays which tend to be cruise ship days as it's very crowded then.

Definitely recommend a visit to the mud baths at the Sulphur Springs. You essentially first enter a (very) hot pool, then move over to a small stream to apply the mud to your skin, let it dry and then head back to the very hot pool to wash it off. Your skin feels so soft and smooth afterwards and it... More

It is a unique experience to rub mud all over your body, wait for it to dry and then become a white monster. They have fun with you putting black mud decorations on your white body, but the beauty of it is the soft skin after you are finished and the warm water and time in the waterfall.

I would definitely recommend getting their as early as possible to avoid the crowds. We arrived around 9:30 and had the baths to ourselves- when we left there were about 50 people around the bath with another 50 waiting. I would suggest just hiring a taxi to take you to the baths as a tour and the admission to the... More

This was the highlight of my trip to St. Lucia! I loved seeing the volcano. First, you went into a building to watch a short video and talk around to see some exhibits and pictures on the wall. Next, you were led to the volcano itself. We were led by a tour guide that gave some interesting history. It was... More
