Los Hervideros de San Jacinto

León & Northwestern Nicaragua

This series of hot springs and mudholes – likely connected to the Telica volcano and sometimes referred to as 'mud fields,' – is a desolate, sulfur-scented place to wander around. Local kids and teenagers will approach you at the small parking lot (US$1) and offer to show you around (about US$1); it's a really good idea to hire one, as there are no marked trails.
