Lugar muy turístico, los locales son amables, preguntar por el señor Domingo y su esposa ellos nos permitieron pernoctar frente a su casa, nos facilitaron el baño, nos orientaron dónde ubicarnos para vender en el día, muy bellas personas, las noches muy tranquilas.

Decent enough place to stay if you need to stop like we did. Not particularly interested in the mud volcano but safe. Lots of trash around. Instead of parking in the parking lot go around to the back of the volcano and park there. More breeze and less noise.

Funny place to visit, 10k for adult and 5k for kids. Free overnight parking. Quiet and safe.

Just wanna say that the mud volcano south of Santiago de Tolú costs 5000 cop pp with shower and it's great

Report Check-In

we arrived at 5pm. no other visitors- so we enjoyed a “mud-bath” after having paid 10.000cop each. it’s a unique experience. thereafter we went to the lake to remove the mud (more or less). returning to our sprinter camper van someone asked if we would like a shower for a “propina”. he agreed that 2.000cop for both of us is enough.
thereafter we had a really quiet night (except some dogs barking) there. we left at 7am- still no tourist there, only the locals. parking over night was free.

Aucun intérêt de s’y arrêter. Les gens ne sont pas sympas, vous êtes un dollar ambulant...
10000 cop par personne pour l’entrée. Si vous passez la nuit, c’est 10000 cop de plus par personne car c’est un autre jour après la nuit passée...
Ensuite il faut donner un pourboire à la personne qui vous fait monter les quelques marches. Et oui, vous ne pouvez pas monter seul.
Vous prenez une bière ? 5000 cop et pas de sourire, plus cher qu’à Cartagena...
Le stationnement pour la nuit n’en est pas un, tout est bon pour vous faire payer ici...
Le site en lui même est entouré de mini restaurant et vendeurs de boisson, au centre il y a le pseudo volcan en terre. A son sommet un petit carré de boue qui fait office de bassin qui ne donne pas envie d’y rentrer. Les gens y pètent sans parler du reste...
Enfin bref, tout est fait pour ne pas rester, nous sommes partis au bout d’une heure.
Préférez le spot de Puerto Velero a quelques km, parfait pour une ou plusieurs nuits !

Great spot for the night. We parked in front of Julio’s restaurant for the night. We arrived at 6 PM and waited for the morning to experience the mud bath. Very weird and fun!! At 7 am there was almost no one on site and we were the only tourist. 10k per person. We gave 10k to Julio for the use of his toilets and shower. And 10k to the guy from the site that took a lot of pictures of us in the mud and I am very happy to have those memories. Very fun stop! And perfect and quiet night.

Passed a quiet night here with use of restrooms. Free but tipped 10k. Went in the volcano at sunrise. Had it to ourselves. No helpers this early in the morning. Very cool experience! It was weird but we really liked it. Bonus lots of puppies!

So, yes you can do it on a cheap way and just pay the entrance of 10.000p/p (5000 for kid). Go there in the morning or around 1-2pm, and you ll avoid the schedule of the tour! And when a tour arrived, this place become like hell....they gave massage without asking (and then you have to pay!), same story at the lake with the bucket of water, for keeping the shoes, etc....with a long line.
If you go there at the right time, you ll have a pleasant experience! 😀 Enjoy!

Exceptionally clean facilities??? Maybe this is meant ironically. - See photos - everything very basic, after 7p.m. nobody around.

We parked the car in front of Julios "Ecotravel" and gave him a propina (5000$) for overnighter.
Next morning at sunrise we enjoyed the muddy bath, as Julio told us, nobody around, no helpers no tourists... crazy feeling. After cleaning up the mud in the laguna we took a shower at Julios (5000$/p)
Exeptionally clean facilities. (WC/showers/cloakroom).
Quiet at night, well worth the visit.

We came before 11 on Thursday it was noone around. Payd 10000p.p it was amazing bath in floating mud. Then wash in the Lake. Some locals training to help u wash (is no need)lying that lake is dangerous to get more money from u. So They were a bit cheeky and upset when we left without givin them anything extra.

We arrived here after dark, no one was around. We decided to camp on the hill that overlooks the volcano + parking area. 4WD not necessary but you will need decent clearance to get over the ditch. We were two rigs here. As workers arrived in the morning we exchanged friendly waves. Watch out for the mud puddle + if you want to take some mud with you, you could take some from here. The experience in the mud bath was great. We definitely recommend a stop here! 10,000 pp for the mud bath, 7,000 pp for showers/bucket (they'd probably accept 5,000). We recommend the showers over the bucket.

very funny experience floating im the mud.
entry now 10'000 p/P. Price written on ticket you get.
the next things are not told in advance, so better ask them first. You get a nice massage in the mud for 5000. They pot shower you afterwards for 5000. The guy who carries your stuff and the one who takes pictures just ask for a tip.
Did not sleep here, but they might charge now.

Negotiated use of showers and toilets for 5000 (originally wanted 20,000!). He sat on the pavement watching us (rather Mongolian) gave him a beer, fed him, then found there was no water in the facilities and later the he left and locked everything! Fortunately we hadn't paid!

We arrived around 4 or 5pm which was great since all the groups were just leaving and we had the place to ourselves. 5000 pesos pP to visit the mud volcano, which is great fun if you're not germaphobic. We parked on the right side in front of the small Ruta Ecologic building, which provided showers and toilets for a fee (they asked for 5000 pesos per couple). Camping was free.
