Still active - well not dangerously so, this is fascinating to see. Climbing along side up steps you can see over and watch the water boiling below. Yes you can definitely smell the sulphur. Follow that with a volcanic mud bath down the hill - the water is Very HOT, a wash off under showers, then on to the waterfall... More

Very busy with tourists and their guides, but still nice to see and experience the mud springs. We went in the "dune buggies" (road, led by a guide). Fun.

It was a stop on a cruise tour, St. Lucia is volcanic island, very green and hilly. The road to Soufriere is also very interesting, as it goes up and down, many turns and amazing views. Many beautiful photos could be taken while on the road. At Soufriere - 9 USD/person entry fee - it smells sulphur, the water colour... More

This was something that we really wanted to see. The smell is awful but the learning experience and price tag was great!

This was a stop on a cruise tour we booked for St Lucia. The site is very nice and it was interesting to see the vents and mud flows and learn about volcanic activity in the area. The only disappointment was we did not have time to take a mud bath

I placed much deeper review of this place in Sulphur springs review. This place is like a mini volcano. For those who been to volcanoes before, it would be waste of time. Drive in refers to the road u can drive ur car to the viewing deck, roughly 500 meters from the entrance. Guides available. It costs to see the... More

Not too many places you can mud up and soak in volcanic hot springs removing 10 years! Changing rooms, shower, mud package "to go" from the mud mixer guy for sale after.

The volcano is very underwhelming, we were expecting something much bigger, it was quite small and you don't really drive in at all. We did the mud bath, I wouldn't do it again but it was fun to get caked in mud and go in the suplhur springs, really hot. Go early, we were there at 10am and it was... More

We took JJ's Speedboat tour from Sandal's Grande St Lucian. This included the Volcano, hot mineral springs, mud bath and a trip to the waterfall to wash off. Great Trip!

Mud baths are available on site. Interesting historical guided tour. Sticky smell of rotten eggs in the air. Some stairs and steep incline to walk on.
