The summit caldera of Apoyeque volcano is filled by a scenic lake.  The age of the latest eruption of Apoyeque is not known, but human footprints underlie pumice deposits thought to originate from Apoyeque volcano or a nearby vent beneath Lake Managua.  This view is from the west caldera rim with the Chiltepe Hills in the background.    Photo by Alain Creusset-Eon, 1970 (courtesy of Jaime Incer).
