The Naolinco Volcanic Field consists of a broad area of scattered Quaternary cones and associated lava flows north of the city of Jalapa, the capital city of the state of Veracruz. Cerro Acatlán in the distance is the largest cone, and is located NE of the town of Naolinco de Victoria. This and other nearby cones have fed lava flows that traveled to the S and SE. The barren area in the foreground is part of the Río Naolinco lava flow, which erupted from vents on the NE flank of Cofre de Perote volcano.
