Visit: Volcan de Lodo El Totumo (Mud Volcano), Cartagena, Cartagena District, Bolivar Department
According to the legend, a monk let a drop of holy water fall into a volcano full of lava; as a result, the lava softened and became a thick, soft mud, with de-stressing and rejuvenating powers.
At approximately one hour away from Cartagena, you will find one of the major touristic attractions of the Colombian Caribbean area, the exotic and natural marvel, Totumo Volcano. Take the time to admire the tropical landscape of Bolivar on the way to this location.
The volcano and the very special Caribbean swamp landscape that surrounds it, make this peculiar geographical formation a must see experience in Cartagena. Once at the site of the volcano, climb the rustic wooden stairs and get ready for the highlight of the day. Once you enter the Totumo volcano you will feel like you’re floating mid-air, because of the smoothness and density of the mud. It is physically impossible to sink into it. At the top of the small volcano, you will not only enjoy the warm mud bath, but also the panoramic view over the Santa Catalina region.
When you leave, you can get a massage done by the locals or go swimming into the calm surrounding lagoon and get the mud off. Afterwards, you can enjoy a typical lunch in the surrounding kiosks, typically consisting of fried fish and fried plantain (not included in tour price). After a perfect closing to this day tour with a delightful lunch, you will have the opportunity to take the last look of the Totumo volcano and get ready to head back. You will return to Cartagena feeling new and improved thanks to the healing and soothing properties of the volcano and its amazing surrounding landscape.
