Conchagüita (left), an island in the Gulf of Fonseca, and Conchagua (right) a volcano on the Salvadoran mainland are seen here across the Gulf of Fonseca from the NE on the island of Zacate Grande in Honduras.  Both Conchagüita and Conchagua are extensively eroded, but a historical eruption was reported from Conchagüita.  The NW flank of Isla El Tigre volcano forms the ridge extending into the sea at the extreme left. Photo by Mike Carr, 1991 (Rutgers University).
