My 22 years old daughter had fun covering herself in the mud from buckets they provide. It is a small area, very crowded, certainly unusual. To clean the body from the mud there is no choice than the hot, hot water from a small tub or thrown at you from a bucket. I personally enjoyed watching others screaming for fun than being covered in mud and splashed with hot water, but it is worth a one hour stop, better with small groups or you won't be given enough time.

If you visit the mud bath make sure you do not go with a big group or the guide will time your going in and out the mud and you won't enjoy it. We went with a small group and we had fun spending one hour there. To wash out the mud the water is very hot, so it is better not to be sun burnt. The mineral springs nearby, with a waterfall and three tubs with warm water are very pleasant and worth another hour there. There is a great view, you feel immersed in nature and it is not crowded.. Before starting the small easy hike, there is a local stand with coconut candy. We went there with Zephyr boat tour that picked us up from the beach of our resort and in Soufriere a van took us to the mud math and the mineral springs.

Ok, so it should be guessed by the name that Sulfur Springs should not smell like roses, but after a long drive and the feeling as if I could be sick at any moment, setting foot on land should not come with the smell of a thousand matches shoved in my nose.

Glad, in retrospect, that I saw this, but I could have lived without it. You know, there are things that are a lot cooler to say that you did than the actual experience - this is one of them.

Not the smell, but the guide was great and the mud bath was great as well showers were a little weak and do NOT wear white. A must see in St. Lucia.

The moniker of ‘the world’s only drive-through volcano’ is a bit misleading, though I guess you are driving through the (ancient) crater of a (just about) active volcano. The actual sulphur springs are not as exciting to look at as they might be, but the boiling mud and sulphur vapours bubbling away over a fairly large area (maybe a couple of acres?) are not sights I have seen before up close. The guided tour takes only 15 minutes, but you can stand and stare from the edge as long as you can stick the sulphur. We didn’t bother with the mud baths, so I can’t say whether the reputed medical benefits are real or not. When we were it went from being practically deserted to a sudden stream of tour buses was coming in from a cruise ship and it got a bit crowded. Of course there is an opportunity to purchase some serious tat after the tour…
