Begin your trip to the Totumo Mud Volcano with 7:30 am hotel pick-up in Cartagena and transfer 1 hour along the breathtaking Colombian Caribbean coast.

Admire the spectacular tropical landscapes as you drive, and arrive early to the Totumo Mud Volcano before the crowds arrive later in the day. Upon arrival you’ll have the opportunity to change into swimwear in the site’s facilities.

Once you’re ready, climb a set of wooden stairs to the top of the naturally occurring dome, and jump in! Your body will hang totally suspended in the mud, with no effort to keep yourself afloat! The mineral-rich mud is incredibly dense and will support you as if you’re suspended, weightless in air!

From the mud volcano, relax, rejuvenate and admire the panoramic view of the Santa Catalina region all around you.

When you’re ready to get out, workers will be available to assist if you need an extra hand. Then, choose to take a spectacular mud massage, dive into the turquoise water of the nearby lake, or both!
