YOu can literally drive right into the crater of this volcano and walk between the bubbling sulfur springs and hissing pools of steam.

I thought it was a bit weird. The mud bath was a lot smaller than expected and a factory line of tourists going in and out- not relaxing at all. I thought it would look like a spa. We were in and out in 20min.

The experience in itself is only available here. If you can adjust to the sulphur smell....the guide is very knowledgeable and the tour interesting. Worth the visit. If you have time, do the mud baths, too.

Although this is a seven acre site of a sunken volcanic crater, the drive in part is only as far as the car park.....you do have to walk up the side of the caldera to view the bubbling pools and see the jets of steam....More

This is a much needed place to stop to see. While we were there the ground was bubbling up in several areas. You can also take a bath here in the mud.

There really isn't much to it. A short walk down a pathway to get a closer view of a little bit of bubbling mud and steam.

We went to the volcano. It was a nice site to see. It's not everyday you get to witness a volcano up close and personal. A must
