Isla el Tigre in Honduras is seen here across the Gulf of Fonseca from Punta el Chiquirín on the eastern tip of El Salvador.  The morphologically youthful volcano rises 783 m above the gulf and is the southernmost in Honduras.  A valley on the SW flank (right) extends to the sea and disrupts the symmetry of the volcano.
