Mud Volcano Adventure

Experience a natural mud bath at L’eau Michel Mud Volcano in south Trinidad. Unlike other mud volcanoes in Trinidad, the mud at L’eau Michel is semi solid and liquid enough for visitors to bathe in. The mud flows out through active vents. The mud here is not hot despite what the term ‘volcano’ might suggest, the mud is cool and smooth and so dense it keeps you afloat. This is usually followed by a short 30-minute hike to the southern coast to L’eau Michel Beach. The tour concludes with a stop at the Roti Shop and Debe to experience their Cuisine (Included with the tour). Roundtrip hotel transfer included.
