Conchagüita (right) and Meanguera (left) volcanoes lie across a narrow strait from Punta El Chiquirín in eastern El Salvador.  Conchagüita is the youngest of the two small volcanic islands in the Gulf of Fonseca and had an historical eruption in 1892.  The more eroded Isla Meanguera volcano ceased activity during the Pleistocene. Photo by Giuseppina Kysar, 1999 (Smithsonian Institution).
