This is a mother nature-created spa day! The small volcano Totumo is on the outskirts of the Pueblo Nuevo. Only about 49ft tall, sets of staircases lead up the sides to the top of the volcano. A large, natural pool holds about 10-15 people at a time who come to dip in its warm, dense volcanic mud. The pool has drawn visitors due to its special properties:

Soothing action anti-inflammatory
Skin and favor purged loss uric acid
Help cell reproduction
Has minerals and trace elements that the body needs

Local folklore says that the volcano once spits fire, lava, and ash that was turned into mud by a local priest who thought the volcano was the work of the devil so he sprinkled holy water into it.

This is a unique experience for the whole family. Both young and old alike can enjoy this fun volcanic bath experience. Whether you just sit and enjoy or get a massage ($2 - $3 US tip). It is a relaxing experience. You can rinse off at Coco Lagoon which is adjacent to the volcano. When your volcanic mud adventure is complete, your private transportation will take you back to your cruise ship terminal.

We choose this excursion because it looked very fun and I knew this Organic Mud Bath provides goods benefits in the skin and hair. Well, I need to say it was fantastic! At first, we feel a indescribable sensation but wow the result we get in our body, it was excellent! And we really enjoyed it and had fun!

Totally different kind of bath

Some may not enjoy this but I think everyone should do it. We actually had more fun in the mud and never thought about the other health benefits. We really were surprised at how soft it makes your skin and hair.....if you are that brave (it takes some scrubing to get out of long hair. The sensation is hard to describe but it was so much fun. We could have stayed all day. Playing in the mud turns you into a kid again!

 HI ShoreExcursioneer, I booked you guys when I was in Roatan three weeks ago on May 14, to Tabayana Beach. As I was there a few years ago, I returned to the beach for a beautiful time. Your driver was on time, very personable and knowledgeable of the areas. In the future, I will try and book you guys wherever possible if available. Thanks for all your assistance.
