Cascadoux mud volcano
Location: N 271,400; E 604,000. Area: 50 hectares, oval-shaped, 1,000 m by 670 m.
Access: 1,350 m along the Cascadoux Trace off the Mayaro-Manzanilla Road.
No tassik occurs and all that may be seen now are a few small cones on the apex of a hill that rises 30 m above the surrounding alluvium. Only one (A type) was slightly active when visited in 1968. No exotics have been found in the mudflow.
There are two cones in March 2019, it is assumed that the low rounded remnant cone is all that remains of the original single cone. The one on the left may be new
