An experience

The mud bath was a very interesting experience along with the pre-bath in the HOT water of the volcano. Go to the waterfall after the mudbath - so invigorating!

Interesting tour of a drive-in volcano. Soaked in the HOT springs and then splashed on some mud. Lots of fun and unique. Enjoyed visiting the rain forest and the bubbling steam.

The volcano stop was part of our land and sea tour. It's not really a drive thru as you would expect. You park and walk to the venting steam. You can see the bubbling hot water in the distance. We have seen this same time of steaming/venting in Hawaii. It is quite interesting but you really don't need to spend... More

It is said this is the only drive-in volcano in the world. Fact is, Yellowstone is just that, a volcano waiting to erupt. Interesting and the mud baths are OK. The hot mud pools are a small portion of those in Yellowstone. It is said that if Yellowstone blows it will leave a third of the USA damaged with ash... More

the sulphur smell might be offence to some people but it certainly won't harm you, quite the contrary is true in fact. If you have been to Yellowstone Ntl.Park then you know what boiling pots look like but... this one is in a very tropical setting and therefore well worth a visit. The staff os very helpful.

We had never been to a volcano before and it was very interesting. Got some great pictures and since we have nothing like this close to us at home we really enjoyed it.

This is just an area of steaming land where a volcano used to be - a caldera. It is always referred to as a volcano and it isn't !! Coaches pull up and have guests pay for access out of sight of what there is to see - it's a great disappointment when you see that there's just smoking ground... More

We were quite impressed with the volcano tour. It had active steam vents and bubbling pools (similar to spots at Yellowstone although not anywhere near as big). The guide was quite informative. Worth a visit if you are interested in this kind of site. It was certainly more impressive than Mt. Vesuvius in Italy,

This was one of our stops on an island bus tour. Entrance to this site was painless via the tour. We just drove straight into the caldera, no queues to pay and parking was easy etc. We were handed over to a local lady guide who walked us down and up the stairs to the viewing gallery. She explained everything... More
