The Drive in Volcano is hyped up a bit as one of the only drive in volcanos in the world. It really wasn't what I expected. I thought you would actually drive through a hole in the side of a volcano. What it is actually is a giant caldera (I hoped I rightly used that word) that takes up a sizeable portion of the west side of the island. You drive up the path to an area where the ground is somewhat active with steam and boiling pools. Before you used to be able to walk on the ground but a guide fell through and got severe burns up to his waist. Now you follow a fenced off path. It costs a couple of bucks to enter and comes with a guide. There is also some thermal baths you can take a dip in.

Directions: South of the town of Soufriere just off the main road. Just follow the sulphur smell.
