These mud pools, which also have sulfured thermal waters, all have different temperatures:176º, 212º and 392º F (80º, 100º and 200ºC). This mud is odorless and can be found in three different colors: gray, brown and yellow. The coloration indicates how deep the pool is: The brown mud indicates a depth of two meters, the gray mud a depth of one meter and the yellow mud indicates the mud is from the surface and is full of sulfur. You can select the clay in which you want to bath and then obtain it from the bubbling mud pool. Whilst waiting 15 or 20 minutes for the clay to cool you down, you can enjoy one of the greatest marvels in the world.
