Conical Volcán Atitlán rises 3500 m above the flat-lying Pacific coastal plain of Guatemala.  Atitlán's twin volcano to the north, Tolimán, forms the shoulder to the right of the summit.  The volcanic highlands of Guatemala are seen here from the SE with Volcán Santo Tomás (Pecul) on the far left horizon, 35 km to the NW of Atitlán volcano.
