Isla el Tigre is a small, 5-km-wide island across a narrow strait south of Isla Zacate Grande in the Gulf of Fonseca of Honduras.  The conical, 783-m-high stratovolcano, seen here from the NE on Zacate Grande island, is less dissected than Zacate Grande volcano and is of probable Holocene age.  A single satellitic cone (far right) overlooks the NW-flank town of Amapala, Honduras' only Pacific port.  The peak in the distance beyond the right-hand flank is the volcanic island of Meangura.
