Half-Day Tour to Totumo Mud Volcano from Cartagena
USD 35.00
Totumo Mud Volcano is a one-of-a-kind attraction home to mineral-infused mud that’s reputed to have healing properties. Avoid the hassle of public transport and the expense of taxis on a stress-free trip to the the volcano, which include lunch and convenient hotel pickup and drop-off. You’ll have ample time to soak in the mud bath and, unlike conventional tours from Cartagena, this excursion includes a stop at Manzanillo Beach.
What to Expect
Following pickup at your hotel in Cartagena, travel with a bilingual guide in a private mini-van for roughly one hour to reach the Totumo mud volcano. Once inside the volcano you can get a massage (additional cost) while floating in the mud. After leaving the volcano, rinse clean in the nearby lagoon then depart to nearby Manzanillo Beach for swimming and lunch before returning by van to your hotel in Cartagena.

Only if you really like mud

If you really like mud baths go for it, but do not expect a posh place or situated in an area of natural wonder or anything. You wait in line for a while then you are in a crowded bowl of mud. Do not dare...More
