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

We didn't do the mud baths but looked at the volcano and walked around a bit. 30 mins was all we needed.

don't buy the tour. Just pay the entrance and have a look at the bubbling sulphur. 20 minutes should do it.

Wanting to see some of the island of St Lucia including the twin Pitons and being a fan of volcanoes, we took a tour from the cruise ship to La Soufriere. It was a heck of a drive up and down and left and right through the rain forest. As well as the Pitons we could see the steam rising... More

La Soufriere Volcano was one of the stops on our tour. Janice (tour guide) was informative, accommodating, pleasant, took her time to answer questions and was knowledgeable. We also saw The Pitons (petite & gros Pitons) They were in the same area as La Soufriere. We learned that they are 'plugs' for inactive volcanoes...interesting and we hope they keep 'plugging'!!!

I don't know what I expected from the name of Drive-In Volcano, but it wasn't this. I suppose in the literal sense of the name, you do Drive-In, but it doesn't feel as if you have because it's a collapsed volcano and so the structure is really a valley with some hot springs. In fact, it occurred to me that... More

The Soufriere Volcano last erupted in the 1700's. It originated from a weak spot in the crust of a collapsed volcanic crater, and is considered to be a dormant volcano. Just outside the Springs, you can bathe in the warm sulphuric pools, reputed for its soothing effects. The mud baths are supposed to detoxify the body and helps heal sun... More

This was on our list to see and we are glad we did, but one thing I'd highly recommend is to go early. If you wait too long then it gets super crowded and it's not enjoyable. We were leaving just as a large group arrived from a cruise ship so we mostly had the place to ourselves. Go before... More
