We did a tour that included either mud bath OR the volcano. We opted for the mud bath, but we could see the "back" of the volcano from the bridge. It was really neat to see it steaming! We could also see the water running...More

We visited St Lucia on a cruise and took a tour that included La Soufriere, the “drive-in” volcano. Majestic views before and after made the ride totally worth it but the actual tour of the volcano site is an education. This is not a loud,...More

Amazing to see how this site has been active for hundreds of years. Strong sulfur smell, bubbling hot mud and steam reminds you about geothermal activity inside earths core.

The hype is great and the expectations were high. However, if you have experienced Rotorua or Reykjavík perhaps you will be disappointed. We did this as a cruise excursion and although the day was good with some history of the island and a views of...More

A good short time experience to have while visiting the island. They provide a guide who goes with you for the thirty minute experience, and provides insight, history, and information about the site. It was cool to see the boiling mud, smell the sulfurous fumes,...More
