Mud Bath!

Very interesting natural wonder. To get that close to an active volcano was amazing, but nothing beats the mudbath. Enjoy.

For $5.50 us you can beat the fun warm sulfur spring to bathe in first then get out and smear mud all over easy to get to but getting in and out of the bath a bit tricky as the water has zero visibility due to the mud take it slow and have a ball walk up a few hundred... More

We drove to Soufriere from Rodney Bay. Needless to say that alone was an experience like no other that I've driven. The location of the town at the base of the Pitons, the beautiful beach, etc., made it hard to believe that this town is actually part of a volcano. Probably very few places in the Caribbean that are as... More

It's stinky so be prepared, but it's very interesting, especially if you've never visited a volcano before. The guides give lots of information, definitely worth a visit if you're in Soufriere.

Definitely a must visit St. Lucia. Mud bath was amazing. Friendly and helpful tour guides. Sulphur smell was not that bad. Be sure to let the mud dry on you body.

Thanks to another 'Simon Says' recommendation of 'must do's' while we were visiting in Soufriere to attend a wedding, I was able to experience the health benefits dipping in the Drive-In Volcano. The mineral waters left my body feeling silky and my joints felt more flexible than when I went in. If I lived in St. Lucia I would go... More

Interesting visit with a very informative guide in Thomas who provided a guide overview of the volcano. Not much else to see apart for some stream and a few bubbling mounds of mud, but was good to learn about the history of the place.

Was taken by surprise of the vast area of land of the Soufriere, how it kept boiling all through the year. The tour guide was explicit in her explanation on the sourfriere and we al enjoyed the experience.

The cost was $5.50/each. Well worth it. Your skin is instantly silky smooth. You get in a pool that is very hot to get used to it. You get out and smear mud all over you. Make sure you do it all over. You stand and let it dry real good. Then it's back in the pool to rinse off.... More
