We drove up to this park at the recommendation of a random person at the airport and were so glad we did. We walked the easy 3km loop around the mud pots with our kids and they loved it! A real gem.

At the reception to this attraction you need to pay for entry and sign in, for safety purposes, as this a place for mainly for nature lovers and walkers. The car-park is not well maintained so drive carefully unless you have a 4x4 :-). There is various walking trails you can take so if you are a keen walker you will want to visit here more than once as one of the trails leads you to a stunning waterfall. The smell in the title refers to the sulphurous mud pools scattered about, which although smelly are quite interesting to see. We went during the rainy season and the greenery is something to behold. Look carefully to see various forms of wildlife from beautifully coloured lizards to howler and spider monkey's, but be careful though as there are poisonous snakes about so try not to go too far from the trails. There is nowhere serves food so come prepared.
TIPS...
TAKE PLENTY OF WATER
Suncream
insect repellant (the stronger the better)
TAKE PLENTY OF WATER
Take enough food
TAKE PLENTY OF WATER
Wear good hiking boots of comfortable shoes (sandals etc are not going to be fun)

It was about a 2 hr walk through the park to visit several Geothermal wonders. The wonders were near the end of the hike. we saw bubbling springs and mud pools. The scenery on the way was excellent.

3km hike... took us about an hour. Some scenic views and otherwise you could smell the sulphur and was mostly a paved trail
