The mud of the volcano has therapeutic properties that feel immediately on your skin, it is very pleasant to be inside the volcano and feel how your body floats, it seems to have no weight.

Hi sol, its a pity that you have not enjoyed the mud volcano because it a different place in Cartagena and Colombia but is necesary you undertand that you pay for this activitie in a hour where there are many people from another agencys too. We try in othres tours like Mud volcano + pinsea the travelers can arrive there a little more aerly to the experience can be better. We hope can change the start hour of this activitie to get better the experiences in mud volcano and dont repeat againg this incident

The mud bath was great and quite an experience. Backpackers was not as great. They showed up over an hour late, and I needed to have my hotel call them to confirm they were actually coming. Our tour guide was nice, but it would have been great to get more history along the
