Description

In Colombia there are two mud volcanoes, one located in Arboletes, Antioquia and another located in the rural area of the Municipality of Santa Catalina together CARTAGENA DE INDIAS, COLOMBIA, next to the Totumo swamp, the latter is our attraction to visit in this activity. It is an attractive and popular place for being full of 'medicinal mud', its natives say that it is curative due to its components such as; water, silica, aluminum, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron and more minerals. According to testimonies from residents and visitors, it generates therapeutic qualities, leaving a positive skin appearance and relieving muscle and joint pain. In summer, the volume of mud in the volcanic cone decreases; in winter, due to the swamp next to the volcano, it is full to the point of overflowing. Its access road connects the city of Cartagena with Barranquilla. Therefore, the departments of Bolivar and Atlantico live with the dilemma of who owns it, a dispute that has only harmed the place because by not knowing who is responsible for the attraction, neither of the two jurisdictions has taken the initiative to invest for its improvement. of the same. Being on the Volcano, for approximately 30 minutes, we have included the entrance and immerse the attraction between 10 to 15 minutes maximum (due to its components, in excess it can cause the opposite of its main characteristic), on site they offer massages, drinks of photographs (with personal mobile devices) and bathing service with totuma in the swamp by a native who is in charge of removing the mud from people. Payment for these services is voluntary. After having spent the established time in the Volcano, we will continue our tour returning to the road that leads to Cartagena, where we will make a stop in the municipality of Manzanillo del Mar, located 40 minutes from La Fantastica, exactly on its renowned beach. where we will enjoy lunch according to the options established in the plan and its sea.
