oak in buoyant volcanic mud, bathe in a fresh water lake, eat delicious traditional lunch, enjoy beautiful beaches and views of the Caribbean coastline.
The mound itself raises at about 15 m (49 ft) and it is serviced by an accessible staircase that leads to the crater, which can accommodate about 10 to 15 people at a time; there, one can bathe in the dense warm mud and have the option of receiving personal massages from the attendants. The experience is then followed by a bath to remove the mud in a nearby sweet water lake.
According to local lore, the volcano used to spew fire, lava and ashes, but it was turned into mud by a local priest who believed it was the work of the Devil and ensued to banish him by sprinkling holy water into it.
