Totumo Volcano
Take the wooden steps up the 15-meter mud mound that is Totumo Volcano (Volcán de Lodo El Totumo) then look down to be greeted by a mud bath big enough to fit dozens of bathers. A popular day trip from Cartagena, it's said that the volcano goes hundreds of meters deep, but when you dip into the warm mud you'll find that it's so dense it's impossible to do anything but bob about at the top.  While wallowing, it’s possible to pay one of the attendants for a personal massage.

Legend has it that Totumo Volcano used to spew out fire and lava, but a local priest, believing such hellfire to be the work of the devil, used holy water to turn it all to mud. After the bath, everyone heads to the next-door lagoon to wash off the gloop, which local women will help you wash off with buckets of water, for a small fee, if you wish.

Practical Info

The volcano is a 40-minute drive from Cartagena in the Santa Catalina district. There’s a $5,000 COP entrance fee to bathe in the mud volcano, and next to it is a small restaurant where the owner can mind your things.
Address: El Totumo, Colombia
