Itinerary
Following pickup at your hotel in Cartagena, travel with a bilingual guide in a private mini-van for roughly one hour to reach the Totumo mud volcano. Once inside the volcano you can get a massage (additional cost) while floating in the mud. After leaving the volcano, rinse clean in the nearby lagoon then depart to nearby Manzanillo Beach for swimming and lunch before returning by van to your hotel in Cartagena.
