El Tutumo is about an hour drive from Cartagena. As soon as you arrive, you shed everything but your bathing suit and walk up the stairs to the volcano. The tour guides will tell you that you don't need flip flops, but I would recommend taking them up to the volcano, as the walk to the lake hurts your feet! You carefully guide yourself down into the mud and they literally push you to where you need to go, as the mud is so dense it's hard to move around. They have a couple guys who hold your camera and take pictures of you, and a few others who give you a massage. If you're not interested, just tell them, but we loved the quick massage! When you're done, you carefully climb out and walk down to the nearby lake to rinse off. At the river they have women who will help you wash off. Again, if you're not interested, just tell them! Overall a very fun experience!!
