Photo Gallery

Jumaytepeque, on the center horizon, is a small basaltic stratovolcano that is seen rising to SE from a resurgent dome of the Miocene Santa Rose de Lima caldera. The 1815-m-high Jumaytepeque volcano was constructed near the SE rim of the caldera, and its youthful profile suggests a possible Holocene age. The volcano on the far horizon to the right of Jumaytepeque is Ixhuatán volcano.
