Totumo Volcano Transportation from Cartagena

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    After pickup from your Cartagena hotel, travel by air-conditioned minivan to the site of the incredible Totumo Volcano. Sit back and absorb the scenic scenery of the Bolivar region as you pass atmospheric mangroves and splendid seaside sights. 

    Enjoy your half-day exploring verdant forests and glittering lakes for panoramic views of the surroundings. Arrive at the volcano, a legendary natural landmark steeped in history and legend; according to local folklore, a priest sprinkled holy water over the molten lava of the volcano, transforming it into the therapeutic mud bath it is today. 

    Sample some local specialties at an authentic local restaurant (own expense) before changing into your bathing suit. Climb the wooden staircase to the summit of the 50-foot (15-meter) volcano, and then descend by ladder into the viscous depths below. 

    Float upon the dense mud, choosing to receive a personal message from an on-site attendant. Rub the thick liquid into your skin to take advantage of its rejuvenating qualities, and then emerge to take a refreshing dip in a nearby lake. Rinse off and revitalize then relax during the journey back to your Cartagena hotel.

    The tour guide picked us up and told us a little about the history and places as we drove. Make sure you ASK all the workers (shoe holder, picture taker, massager, bather) how much BEFORE they help you. Otherwise, Totumo was a different and memorable...More
