Great place to take a dip in 100 degree (F) water, filled with minerals and fueled by this still active volcano. A "must visit"!

We met a guy with a boat who set up a tour including lunch up in the mountains.We hiked thru the Volcano and bathed in the hot sulfur mud that is also supposed to be good for the muscles.

If you're out and about looking for something to do in Soufriere, this is probably a worthy side trip. Having been there, I would not make a special trip just for this. I did not experience the mudbaths while there, but some people were traveling with thought they were OK.

Agree with the others that this certainly is not an all day event... got here on a tour of the island with our hired driver. Spent about 1.5 hours in total here seeing the sulfur pits and the mud baths; get the combo pass to do that.... our guide, however, was a delightful young Lucian who took us around the... More

Went to the volcano as part of a full day excursion. It obviously smells like sulfur (which is a good thing) because it's an active volcano. You can't get too close but you do see the steam and bubbling water/mud. We took a mud bath and got in the volcanic hot spring. It was really hot but felt good. We... More

We visited the volcano as part of our day trip to Soufriere. It can be done in less than an hour depending on how long you want to watch the bubbling pools or how many pictues you take. Our guide was very informative and my husband and I really enjoyed hearing about the volcano and history. Things to keep in... More

During our visit to La Soufriere Drive-in Volcano, which was more of taste of the location, rather than an extended stay, we were there about 10 minutes, we saw the "volcano". I found the site to be somewhat average in terms of being impressive. We didn't do the mud baths. In some ways this location seemed similar to areas one... More

Came here as part of a tour of the whole island. My friends went off to do the mud baths but I really wanted to see the volcano so was driven up to the top and joined another group with a guide. She was very knowledgeable and I was interested to learn how big the caldera was, miles across with... More

I came to this volcano as part of St Lucia shore excursion with my boyfriend from the Carnival Fascination cruise ship. We loved this island and the Pitons. However, I was not a big fan of this part- the volcano had an awful sulphur smell that remains on my clothes, even though I've washed them! The tour of the volcano... More
