We booked a tour in our hostel and went to the volcano. Calling it a volcano is a bit of a stretch. It looks more like a huge ant mound. The mud or whatever substance you get into is quite amazing. Its about 7 feet deep according to the people working there. Its impossible to sink. You just float, even... More

This is definitely an experience unlike any others we have had on our... More

Highly recommended to get there early, better in low season. Otherwise this place will be crowded & it is small & will be annoying. Not a place for everyone:... More

Go in the morning, when there's no line so you don't have to wait to go in, or be shoved out at the end of your time. I will never forget the sensation of stepping into the warm mud and effortlessly floating while being massaged. The only thing I didn't like was the only way you clean off at the... More

This was a strange experience but exciting. This was a interesting concept for tourist an locals. The experience is really relaxing and rejuvenating skin and body feel revived. Even though it rained and was dangerous coming down the mountain. The water after the mud was warm the women bathed you in. Be prepared to tip the guys that takes your... More
