The Aguas Termales geothermal field at the southern base of Rincón de la Vieja volcano contains active mudpots.  Several geothermal areas occur along a NW-trending lineation at the base of the volcano.  Soil mercury studies delineate a fault parallel to the volcanic front that connects the geothermal sites.
