Cute baby volcano

It's an adorable small inactive volcano that you can go down into. There's a little pond at the bottom with some fish, and it's fun to say you've been inside the smallest volcano.

Short and funny thing to do. You can go inside of the smallest vulcan on earth. Short stairway down. Middle of the city. Small entry fee.

Spend 30 minutes here. If you speak Spanish, be prepared to be visited by Gabriel or one his brothers who will give the most animated talk on the history of the volcano. You will be entertained and will laugh your head off. Stair down 60 feet into the crater of a small inactive volcano in the center of town.

This is the worlds smallest volcano. You can pay a few pesos and climb the fifty feet or so to descend a spiral staircase into the throat. At the bottom are springs with blind fish. If you're not that into geology, I wouldn't bother with the site.

I was in Puebla and saw the site on the map, it is also call Volcancito, you have to take a taxi and hopefully the driver will know the location....is a cool visit and it is an extinct crater from the towering volcano a few miles away....worth the visit just to understand how it works.....takes a few minutes to visit...

First of all, it´s not that easy to find because it´s far from downtown Puebla. Try using google maps, because we asked a couple of people and they didn´t know the place or what it was. When you get there, you go up a latter and then you go down inside the “mini volcano” (don´t wear a skirt), where you... More

This little gem is tucked away in a neighborhood and has a small market attached. It also has several cool jungle gyms / play structures on the grounds. It's a quick stop and reasonably priced. The question is, is it the worlds smallest volcano or largest spring...don't know but it is worth the stop. My kids really liked it.
