The dry-floored Hoya Solis maar is seen from the SW rim of Hoya Blanca maar, immediately SW of the city of Valle de Santiago.  The rim of Hoya de Cintora maar lies beyond Hoya Solis below the far left horizon, and a light-colored quarry is faintly visible on the lower NW flanks of Cintora maar.  The 600-m-wide Hoya Solis maar is one of the smallest of Valle de Santiago volcanic field, located in the NE part of the Michoacán-Guanajuato volcanic field.
