What people say

"Tour Overview: (This is a private tour, only your group will be participating) Enjoy a relaxing mud therapy session on the very top of the Totumo volcano, 2,300 meters high. Natives call it curative mud, due to its therapeutic qualities and medicinal properties, reducing stress, normalizing blood circulation, and discharging negative energy. The locals will offer massages, photography, and assist in bathing you after. If you take up on any of the offers I highly suggest bringing cash for tips. You will also be visiting the Pink Sea. (I personally was not able to see as I went off season.) The pink sea is not a place to bathe in the water, it is rather to admire its pink color, take some photos, learn about this natural phenomenon and support the local communities that live from the arrival of tourists. You should also know that the Pink sea is a seasonal attraction, which is why it is only available for some months of the year, and depending on if it is raining or not the pink color can be diluted. "
"For an extraordinary adventure, you can venture to the nearby Totumo Mud Volcano, about an hour away from Cartagena. This natural wonder offers you the chance to immerse yourself in therapeutic mud baths, believed to have healing properties, and then cleanse yourself in the nearby river.” "
"Volano tours with mud baths! Definitely recommend booking a tour and go early to avoid the crowds and the heat. Most tours include lunch and washing off at the beach afterwards."
