What To Expect
According to the legend, a monk shed a drop of holy water in a volcano full of lava as a result the lava softened and became a thick, soft mud, with de-stressing and rejuvenating powers.
At approximately one hour away from Cartagena you will find one of the major touristic attractions of the Colombian Caribbean area, the exotic and natural marvel, the Totumo Volcano. Take the time to admire the tropical landscape of Bolivar on the way to this location.
The volcano itself and the very special Caribbean swamp landscape that surrounds it, make of this peculiar geographical formation a must see to experience in Cartagena. Once at the site of the volcano, climb up the rustic wooden stairs and prepare yourself for the highlight of the day. Once you enter the Totumo volcano you will feel like floating in the air; because of the smoothness and density of the mud it is physically impossible to sink. At the top of the small volcano, you will not only enjoy the warm mud bath, but also the panoramic view over the Santa Catalina region.
When you leave, you can get a massage done by the locals or go swimming in the calm surrounding lagoon to get the mud off. Afterwards, you can enjoy a typical lunch in the surrounding kiosks, typically consisting of fried fish and fried plantain (not included in tour price). After a perfect closing of this day tour with a delightful lunch, you will have the opportunity to take the last look of the Totumo volcano and get ready to head back. You will return to Cartagena as a new and improved person thanks to the healing and soothing properties of the volcano and the amazing landscape.
