We hired a car and had a little trouble finding this place....you'd think there would be loads of signs but they're not over keen on road signs in St. Lucia. Any how, worth a look. Bold claims about driving into a volcano...which you do ...but it's not all that exciting. Bubbling pools and a rank smell which you do get... More

We took a long drive from our cruise ship to this fascinating dormant volcano. The guide and driver from Foster and Ince were both great. There were a few stops along the windy mountain roads at a garden and a fishing village. The bubbling mud pots were mesmerizing and reminiscent of Yellowstone park. The distinctive odor of sulphur is not... More

$12 US and money's go back into park and support locals. Nice easy walk with steps to view the dormant, yet bubbling volcano. Informative guide. Smell was not overwhelming. Vendors nearby. Bought a delicious tamarind fruit ball. Did not do the mud baths.... did them in Costa Rica. Then went to the waterfall. $3 US. Get in the water and... More

Wear a dark swimsuit! Bring a towel & baby wipes! When I saw the pictures, I almost didn't do it. But I'm so glad I did! You walk down to the (very) warm mud bath, where you open your pores. You then walk a little way to scrub with the muddy sand. You can jump back into the mud bath,... More

Aside from the smell this is beautiful and not something you see everyday you get to see the gases coming out of the volcano as you drive through. You can bath in the mud baths but we didn't do that instead we continued through so we could do a nature hike through the rainforest which was incredible and got to... More

This is a must see since it is right with the sulfur springs mud baths. It is a short hike within part of the volcano.

There is a possibility that you will be overwhelmed with the smell of sulphur. I personally found it to be too strong to manage. Tho I didn't go down into the walking tour, I was told by my friends that the smell is actually not as strong further down. So perhaps you should be braver than I and take the... More

The actual volcanic action is... More
