A great place to learn about the area, our tour guide was very informative about the history of the volcano. Sadly went arrived 2 weeks after a hurricane so there was some damage to a lot of the trees, one they were particularly upset about.
Around the area it smells like rotten eggs but when you are actually in the volcano it's only a faint smell.
For the mud baths wear dark swimwear or something old, I don't recommend doing this is you have a sun burn, the water is over 40°C/100°F, after getting damp in the pools you get to basically have a mud fight without the throwing part, you cover yourself/loved ones with the light grey mud and let it dry, you then decorate yourself with the black mud and have some fun. After washing it off you feel softer and more relaxed.
Our guide didn't accompany us to the pools so another guide took photos for us and explained what we needed to do with the mud.
It's a nice cheap experience and something you don't often get to do.

The tour of the volcano itself was short (approx 15-20mins with a guide that comes with the ticket price) but informative - as people are no longer allowed to go onto the volcanic plains near the bubbling mud pools, you're only able to stand and view from a distance. Oh, and don't forget its going to smell too, as sulphur just stinks!

The main attraction, however, is the volcanic mud baths - 4 bubbling pools of graduating heat/temperature. No time limit to how long you can be there, mud and clay (black and light grey) is provided in buckets for you to apply onto your skin and you can literally sit and chill for as long as you like! My skin felt amazing afterwards and it was pleasant experience. Cold showers and basic wooden changing rooms are provided.

We stayed at Frenz in Soufrier and we loved it. Walking distance to beach and town centre. Owner of Frenz Inn (find them on instagram FrenzInn) is an exeptional person whi made sure that we had an awesome time. His driver picked us up from the airport, arranged the driver to take us to Sulfur Springs Mud baths, Tet Paul hike (excellent), botanical garden worth seeing, very relaxing,We got a driver for a day and went to see Rodney Bay, Pigen Island (highly recommend), Marigot bay, Castries.
Valery arranged water taxi for us so we could spend a day at Chestenet and Mamin Beach and one day at Sugar Beach. We snorkeled a lot, ate at local restaurants and made some meals in our Frenz's unit (as we had full kitchen there)
Entry Fees: Sulfur Spring Mud Baths $10 US per person, plus $5US pp for a tour.
Botanical Garden $6 or $7US, Jerusalem Mineral Baths (lovely) $4US,
We also painted 5 outdoor murals for Frenz which you can see on his building (Old Factory Rd)

We visited the mud baths as part of a wider tour from our hotel which also included the volcano and the diamond botanical gardens. The mud baths are good. There are about 3 or 4 small pools of hot muddy water to bathe in. There is also an experience where you can put light grey mud all over your body and then black mud handprints on top which looks quite funny. It wasn’t too busy when we visited but the staff only allowed us in for about 15mins because of covid which was fair enough. Wear old and dark swimwear that you don’t care about because it will be stained by the mud and the iron in the water. Our skin and nails also went orange from the iron. I think the site would be better to visit on your own by hire car if possible because when you have a guide it becomes a bit too touristy and you’re told where to go and how long to take etc. There are quite a few stalls outside with locals selling souvenirs.

Had a lovely time here. Would recommend doing this as a solo excursion (if you can) and not booked as part of a tour. Arrive well before 9, as many of the tours start arriving from then and it gets very busy and time is restricted - I think only 15mins given to guests. We arrived around 8.30 and spent well over an hour there, which was plenty. Each bath is varying temps, the hottest closest to the spring and reducing as you go down. Decorating your body with the mud is fun and has great benefits - skin felt really soft afterwards. Also felt really relaxed afterwards - would definitely recommend this, but arrive early!

You can choose to either go into the mud baths or visit the volcano, we did the later. The guide we had was really knowledgeable and enthusiastic making the tour very interesting. The sulphur smell is very strong but you get used to it. Worth doing, even on a rainy day as it was for us.

It is the most popular tourist destination in Saint Lucia, with approximately 200,000 annual patrons to the park, and is known as 'the world's only drive-in volcano'. Of course it stinks of rotten eggs but you do get used it it. Well worth a visit as you cannot get this close to many active volcano's in the world. You can also go for a swim in the mud baths if that takes your fancy.

We decided not to do the mud baths since we did not have any old spare swimsuits that we would have just thrown away. We were unlucky and were there when some cruise boats were in and the place was a mad house. The attendants at the parking area are very professional and made sure that they told us where to park, then buy the tickets and then drive up to the actual sulphur springs. Our guide for the sulphur springs was great. She actually told 4 cruise ship passengers that they needed to go back up and get a tour guide since she was already doing a tour (which was us). So, it was great to have a guide to ourselves. She was great. It was a great learning experience. Well worth your time to do this since there are not that many places in the world where you can do this.

The visit was part of our land and see adventure. It was a lot of fun, it actually felt good to get in the hot water. After I rinsed off the mud, my skin felt so soft. In my opinion the mud bath is a must. Only problem is it gets busy, very busy, tonight want to visit on a day that has no cruise ships at the port, because everyone goes there and groups are big. Our guide drew with darker mud on top of the light one and we got some awesome pictures. Also when they advised you to wear dark clothing, please take that advice. The mud itself washes off easily, but there is that residue that doesn't, it leaves orange pinkish stain s on your clothes and sometimes on your bathing suite, those stains don't wash off. Also you can't really get the residue off your skin there nor at the waterfall (the water there is pretty cold) the only way is to scrub it off with soap and a wash cloth

It was good fun but with lots hassles. Btw I’m not entirely sure if the mud Bath is really good for your skin or any kind. It stinks badly.
I worn a gold plated ankle bracelet and did not thought about it. No one had warned me about it either. After 5 mins in the Bath my bracelet lost the gold plating. It looks like a brass chain. I saw people reported that their silver or white gold jewelleries turned bright orange. Some returned silver colour a few days later but I did not see any reviews about gold/ gold plated jewellery. Not sure if the Iron and Sulphur reacted with gold hopefully the plating has not gone.
After the mud Bath you’d be taken to somewhere 15mins drive away to a waterfall. You’d pay to get showered in the waterfall. Yep shower in the waterfall (the water steam is not weak). If you wear contact lenses like me you may not like it at all. There is no proper shower facility on site. I had some mud left on me whole day.
Another obvious tip is don’t wear light colour swimwear to the mud Bath. My white bikinis were left with dark ink.
