The Hoya Rincón de Parangüeo maar rises directly above the town of the same name located on the lower southern flank. A brackish lake of seasonally variable size partially fills the floor of the 2-km-wide maar, seen here from its southern rim. The high point on the northern rim rises 450 m above the crater floor. Rincón de Parangueo is part of the Valle de Santiago maar field on the NE side of the Michoacán-Guanajuato volcanic field and is about 7 km NW of the town of Valle de Santiago.
