Laguna Verde is a 500-m-wide lake that partially fills the 1-km-wide summit crater of Cerro Laguna Verde in the Apaneca Range. Laguna Verde is a Pleistocene-age edifice within the Concepción de Ataco caldera. Flank craters on Laguna Verde volcano are among the youngest volcanic centers of the Apaneca Range.
