The Aguas Termales geothermal field on the lower southern flank of Rincón de la Vieja volcano contains mud pools like this one. Several geothermal areas occur along a NW trend at the base of the volcano. Soil mercury studies delineate a fault parallel to the volcanic front that connects the geothermal sites.
