Volcan del Totumo: Mud Volcano

Today, I took a bath in Volcan del Totumo, which is a mud volcano along the Caribbean coast roughly between the cities of Cartagena and Barranquilla. The errie thing is that the volcano has no bottom, but because the pressure of the volcano is going upwards you float. So I had this feeling of weightlessness the entire time. Maybe it’s similar to bathing in the Dead Sea (I’ve never done that).

Anyway,we spent about an hour in the volcano, and afterwards they took us to a restaurant by the beach, where we ate and swam for another hour, and then back to Cartagena. Pictures of the mud bath are below.  Now it’s time for me to take a late siesta, as I have a Chiva bus to catch tonight!

    I’ve seen weirder things than this. But it is pretty weird.
