Dirty Tricks: Erase Years with St. Lucia Mud

Sometimes getting down and dirty is a good thing.

Take my birthday, for instance.  Instead of advancing a year, I decided I’d rather try taking a few years off, using therapeutic mud.  At least that was my goal… well, that and jumping on the opportunity to unleash my inner 5 year-old.

Sulfur Springs on St. Lucia was the much-anticipated excursion on my week-long birthday celebration on the Carnival Cruise ship Valor.  Just inland from the picturesque fishing village of Soufrière (French for sulfur) on the southwestern side of the island, the thermal pools and mud baths are inside the world only “drive-in” volcano.  The road runs right into the crater of the dormant volcano, where you are immediately surrounded in steam, sulfur, and boiling mud.

Fully slathered with the St. Lucia sludge, I look like one tough mudder, no?

  1. You look good in all that mud, Patti! When I was in St. Lucia, I was wrapped in molten chocolate and fed handmade chocolates at the same time! It was truly decadent, and for this chocoholic, preferable to the mud!

    Either way, St. Lucia rocks and is definitely high on my list as a true paradise.
