Overview

The Piparo Mud Volcano is located in central Trinidad along a road that leads you all the way to Piparo from the highway exit at Gasparillo. The area sits on a hilltop and today is covered by grass that is broken by areas which are bubbling mud. The mud is not brown in color, but a grayish concrete color, and is fairly thick, like pudding. Once there, you can hear the rumblings and occasional burbs of mud. The volcano area itself no longer poses any eminent danger. It first exploded in 1997 and covered one square mile in size, displacing 31 people from their houses. There are no signs to reach here, so you need a tour guide; contact the information provided to arrange a visit. - Nadia Ali
