El Totumo Mud Vulcano in Santa Catalina

April 3rd, 2010

The Mud Vulcano in Santa Catalina is a popular tourist attraction and a must visit for spa lovers.

This vulcano bath is filled with thick mud where you can float around in to rejuvenate your skin. For a small extra charge you can also get a massage which is a real treat!

After the mineral bathing you can wash yourself in the river next to the vulcano while you take in the stunning view.

While the men are the ones giving the massage the local women will give you a hand to wash yourself clean in the river. The people were really friendly and I felt at ease right away.

You can arrive at the vulcano by bike if you want to keep in shape at the same time.
