    Totumo Volcano Tour

    El Totumo Mud Volcano (or Volcán de Lodo El Totumo in Spanish) lies about one-and-a-half hour's drive from Cartagena. Technically it's not a real lava-spewing, ash-throwing volcano, but rather a 15-metre-high mound full of mud which makes for a unique Colombian spa experience and endless fun.

    The Volcano is not everyone's cup of tea - or pot of mud to be exact. It's perfect for adventurous souls who love the idea of swimming in a crater full of warm mud—which definitely has its upsides. You get a relaxing mud massage, and because of the high buoyancy, it's a truly hilarious experience trying to swim (or even remain upright) in the brown viscous mud.

    Most visitors will tell you it's an incredible sensation being covered in mud, and makes for great pictures. The Volcano also has alleged healing qualities as its minerals are said to help rejuvenate the skin.
