Totumo Volcano

 

The only thing visitors want to do in Galerazamba, in the town of St. Catherine of Alexandria, southwest of Barranquilla, is mud-bathe. Visitors climb about 65 feet up a wooden staircase leading to the mouth of the Totumo Volcano. There they descend into the crater and come into contact with a dense, grey fluid in a space with room for about 10 people.

NEARBY ATTRACTIONS AND ACTIVITIES

 

Museums, historic squares, and lots of music await those who come to Barranquilla. Beaches and natural havens for relaxation are also found in and around this Caribbean city.
