El Volcan de Totumo which is between Barranquilla and Cartagena is a large mound, which in its crater has volcanic mud. We went along as a group and I was the first one of us in. I was screaming, whooping and laughing like a monkey on drugs, but it was super cool. We got a funky massage from the guys there, and then floated about in the mud, allowing it to cover up our bodies. Afterwards we took a short walk to the river, where a group of Colombian women sat us down and washed us vigorously- even removing our swimming costumes! This may sound like a great experience… But these women weren’t the Colombian beauty queens we see on TV. Unfortunately.
Still, it was a great experience and I’d advise anyone to go and do it.
