Chinameca is a small stratovolcano with a 2-km-wide, steep-sided summit caldera. It is seen here from the flanks of San Miguel volcano to its SE. The Holocene cone of Cerro el Limbo (left-center) on the western flank rises above the caldera rim, and a Holocene lava flow extends to the north from a NNW-flank vent. The low peak on the far right above the foreground trees is Cerro Partido (also known as El Chimarrón).
