Ausoles de la Labor fumaroles and hot pools form one of the largest geothermal areas in the Ahuachapán geothermal field. The area is located near the SW base of the Cerro San Lazaro lava dome, about 5 km N of Laguna Verde volcano. The Ahuachapán geothermal field contains fumaroles, mud volcanoes, or hot springs, throughout a roughly 80 km2 area on the northern flank of the Apaneca Range.
