Symmetrical Volcán de Agua, seen here in an aerial view from the SE, is the easternmost of a chain of 3000-m-high conical stratovolcanoes rising above the Pacific coastal plain. The town of Palín at the lower right lies along the highway between Guatemala City (just out of view to the right) and Escuintla. No historical eruptions are known from Agua, which has the distinction of a soccer field in its small summit crater.
