    Fun for whole family
    Yes this experience is designed for tourists but if you are not a native to the island you are a tourist, so relax and enjoy it. Our family of 10 had a great time. You do not need a guide for this adventure. We simply used a taxi service to get us there and paid our fees and went in. No one rushed us in and out, which I did see happening to those on guided tours. We stayed much longer than the 30 minutes recommended. If you go later in the day, there will not be much of a crowd. We had no problems getting in and out of the tubs and several were empty. The pools farthest from the source are not as hot so I suggest starting there. The mud does contain some very small pebbles that act as a loofa. Your skin will feel wonderful. Family members with eczema and psoriasis did not have any problems at all. Gathered around at the top of the hill are several drink and food options. We enjoyed wonderful virgin cocktails for the ride back to our villa.

    Arrive early or the springs are a waste of time
    We arrived and wanted to do both the volcano tour and sulphur springs. The tour of the volcano was good and our guide was very informative and friendly however when we went to the sulphur springs we were disappointed to find the chap who gets the mud had gone home at 3pm so we were unable to actually do the mud baths. This was never said when we bought the tickets or when we did the volcano tour - very disappointing.

    Very good experience while you are visiting St Lucia
    We visited the mud baths during our visit in St Lucia. While it may seem gross, it is a really neat experience. The mud and the soak really does soften your skin. Don’t rush. Take your time and soak and enjoy. This is a must on your visit to St Lucia

    Soft and hot.
    We had a great time. The spring IS hot and it might make you not want to go in. But, once you break through that initial barrier, you get used to it and it feels nice. We went later in the afternoon and most people had left or were leaving, so we did not experience a crowd as mentioned in some of the other reviews. I think having a personal driver/guide helped. I saw someone complain about a stained bathing suit. Well, I say - don't put mud on clothing. Once you get to your hotel and see some staining, hand wash it. It WILL come off. A round of laundry when you get back will make it look brand new, so worries if you only follow some basic steps. The skin really feels a lot softer afterward. The steam coming from the volcano is amazing to witness.

    Well worth a visit
    Very interesting visit, guides really knowledgeable and informative, whether you’ve visited similar sites in the past, it’s a must see place. You can tailor your visit to a drive through and guided tour (about 15/20 minutes for the guide) and there are places to get a drink, buy souvenirs and also toilets. Also you can take a mud bath - and you soon get used to the sulphur smell! Sellers can be a bit pushy but they’re only trying to make a living, we found the same products on sale everywhere (mostly made in china it seems!).

    Check it off your bucket list and it’s a must do experience.
    Leaves your skin feeling smooth :) Don’t book through your hotel. Find a driver on FB group for much cheaper and pay when you get there. The Sulphur Springs smells but that’s expected, you don’t need water shoes. Don’t bring anything valuable bc they don’t have locked lockers. But bring cash if you want souvenirs and water. Gave 4 stars bc it’s quick and not that fun but a thing you need to do

    Lots of fun
    Place was awesome. We had a very knowledgeable tour guide who explained all about the volcano. The mud bath was fun but ruined our bathing suites. Would recommend wearing an old suit that you might want to throw away when finished.

    So much fun and very relaxing.
    What a brilliant experience! We had so much fun. First we walked through the beautiful botanical gardens and then onto the sulphur and mud springs. After soaking in the hot springs (which give eternal youth of course….) we painted each other with the white and black mud before showering off. Lots of fun, relaxing and one not to be missed.

    The earlier the better
    After hiking Petit Piton, the Sulphur Springs are a great place to relax, and unwind my muscles. The hot springs itself open pretty early at around 6 o’clock and close pretty late at around 10 PM. However, if you want to do the tour, it only starts at around 9 AM and ends at around 5 PM. Most of the locals arrive very early and depart before the tours come. It is highly recommended that you arrive as early as you can for the cool weather later in the day, it can be pretty hot and crowded. This is definitely highlight when visiting St. Lucia

We went at about 5pm which meant we had the place almost to ourselves. Natural sulphur springs quite an experience. Also worth walking up the hill a bit to get a great view of some of the other areas

Mud bath was a fun experience and thankfully we had a private driver who ensure we arrived before the crowds. After the mud bath, we had a private tour of sulfur springs and our guide was very knowledgeable and overall it was a good experience. Be sure to wear a dark swim suit for the mud bath.

These are quite small, so don't expect too much!
We went with a guide/tour and went straight in as they had sorted the tickets. It is also useful to have someone with you, as they can "guard" your belongings and take pictures for you!
Go with your swimsuit underneath, so you can just strip off top clothes and get in. Take towels too. And the mud can stain - so make sure you have dark swimming gear.
There are 4 baths - not that big and they say to spend about 10 minutes in to warm up. Then you cover yourself in the light grey mud. Then you get the dark mud and paint a pattern - or get one of the guides to do it - they are much better at it!
You let this dry off (and have lots of pictures!) and then get back in to rinse it off. It doesn't come off fully - it will be ingrained in your skin for days!!!
There are showers, but these are more of a tap to rinse off.
We wrapped our towels around us, popped flip flops back on and the guide said to get back in the car like that. We then went to the waterfalls nearby and you rinse off here and there are cubicles to put your clothes back on.

It can be a bit of a drive to get here, but is a fun thing to do. We were probably only there around 40 minutes, so it's good to do it with other things.

WARNING: do not go without a towel. They will take your money but, without a towel, unless you're happy to dry in the sun, you will be disappointed. As the young lady so kindly pointed out "It is obvious to everybody in the world that you have to bring your own towel". But I'm in the world, so I fall within the definition of "everybody", and I didn't think it obvious, nor was I willing to pay $20 for a towel, so she was wrong!

Definitely a fun experience to get covered in mud and then wash off and relax in the hot pools. Apparently it makes you look 10 years younger, I’m not sure about that claim. There is a changing area, shelves to leave your bags and showers to get fully washed off afterwards. We had a great time.

It was fun getting covered in mud that is said to make you look 10 years younger. Then washing off in the hot volcanic pools.

We participated in (geeked-out on) an excellent, informative tour (I believe with Theodora) which explained the origins, development and progression of the world's only drive-in volcano, its impact on the surrounding island, and historical tidbits, with a couple of hands-on opportunities; Followed by an invigorating (per my spouse) bath in the springs and mud application; You have the opportunity to purchase a variety of goods from local artisans/craftsman on the grounds; Get there well before 11 a.m. to beat the crowds and the heat!

The Sulphur baths and drive in volcano were an amazing experience leaving your skin feeling amazing. However, the vendors leading up to the baths sell fraudulent goods. I bought soap they labeled and sold as Sulphur infused soap and when I got home and opened it, it was a bar of dalan and sj soap. Which are brands you can find in the stores. Definitely go to the Sulphur springs but do not buy any of the items from the vendors.
