Really neat experience, although completely rammed with people for such a small area! The experience of being covered in mud is like no other! Make sure you dont rinse the mud off with water after bathing, my skin has never felt so soft! The temperature...More

The bus ride was twisty and curvy as described and we had a couple of stops along the way, making the trip to the mud bath about 3 hours. There was rain, intermittently, being in the rain forest. Once there, it was sunny and beautiful....More

I would not waste my time to go back. The smell is horrible, and it is not an amazing sight! The mud baths are near here, but I would not want to return.

The drive-in volcano sounded fantastic to us! When we went, it was explained to us that there was a volcanic explosion back in the 1600's and had created a crater. That's basically the drive-in volcano. I sorta expected gurgling hot mud or other activity. We...More

There are a couple of showers to rinse. Need to bring your own towel. You rinse first in the warm bathes.
