Bathing in the mud bath awaits great surprise

El Totumo Mud bath in Columbia can be reached through a wooden staircase. The bath is full of cream like lukewarm mud which is reported to have healing properties and for this many people bathe in the mud. There are local cameramen who will be your personal photographer for a high cost, and it is better to avoid massagers in the bath as their movements are not always descent. Finally, as you head towards the nearby pool for washing, the local women will force you to be washed by them for high charges of course.
