WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR VISIT TO THE MUD VOLCANO OF TOTUMO?
The Totumo volcano rises just over 15 meters above ground level, as a present testimony of the tectonic forces that formed this part of Colombia. A cone literally full of volcanic mud, rich in silica, magnesium, calcium and other minerals, is known for its supposed therapeutic benefits and, in any case, tested as a unique experience.
Popular belief indicates that the minerals contained in the medicinal mud of this volcano have therapeutic power that benefits those who submerge in it.
