Day 249 – Get down & dirty, El Totumo

We hear about a mud volcano not far out from Cartagena. It’s more of a dirt mound than an actual volcano sitting on the shores of a small lake village. We climb the mound and then descend on a wooden ladder into a pool of mud. Once inside the density of the mud allows you to float with ease. The locals massaged us while we float horizontally. Can’t touch the bottom and it is the weirdest sensation. Afterwards we head down to the lake looking like swamp monsters and the local ladies wash us off using their hands and buckets just as if we were young kids in a bathtub. Such fun with softer and maybe younger looking skin ha ha.
