TimeMag. / DepthDistanceLocation
Punta Púlpito volcano is a lava dome which formed about 500,000 years ago on a small peninsula at the Gulf of California east of the southern tip of Bahía Concepción.
It is included in the catalogue of potentially active volcanoes because it still has an active geothermal system with hot springs and steaming ground.
One active geothermal field is known as the Saquicismunde geothermal area, and the larger Los Volcanes geothermal area, located along the coast about 5 km south of Punta el Púlpito, contains 18 fumaroles along a NW-SE alignment.
