The Apastepeque volcanic field NE of San Vicente volcano consists of a dense cluster of about two dozen lava domes, scoria cones, and maars. Laguna de Apastepeque is seen here from the WNW with the Tecapa-San Miguel volcano group in the background. The visible walls of the 800-m-wide lake are only about 5 m high and the lake is approximately 50 m deep.
