San Jacinto is a little town about 20 kilometers northeast of León. Behind the village lie boiling mud holes, connected probably to the Telica volcano. The field is not big but it is interesting as well as extremely hot to walk around and see the holes, which differ in size and color, where the mud is fiercely boiling. The mud sometimes throws little rocks in the air and steam is continuously emitted from the holes.
Many local kids offer to guide you around. This is surely a good idea because there are no clearly set paths that mark where it’s safe to walk and the kids know where to take you.
Buses that stop in San Jacinto leave from León often. In your own car, leave León going to the north. After about 12 kilometers you should take a right, going in the direction of Malpaisillo (there are signs). After about 10 minutes San Jacinto will be on your left (it is right next to the road).
