  • Beautiful settings once your over the smell of sulphur. The clay and mud feels gritty when you put it on but once you bathed in the warm water your skin will love and thank you for it. Soap bars from the mud and/or clay also available to purchase for a small price. Anything over 10XCD they are ripping you off!!! Also go early morning as anywhere near midday you can boil an egg in the springs. Anytime before 9am your good.
  • The mud bad is good fun. Make sure to come either early or late to avoid all the tours. We had it almost for our own
  • Not too expensive and you have a guide who explains the history of the place to you. A tip for the guide at the end of the tour.....
  • Tourist attraction in st Lucia. You will smell h2s gas over here And there are very less active volcanoes in the world.and that's why you should see it
  • Such an amazing place with great sulphur mud baths for the skin
