The Tecapa volcanic complex (left) and Volcan Taburete (right) are separated by a 800-m-high saddle.  They are seen here from the SW rising more than 1100 m above the Pacific coastal plain and lie at the eastern end of a volcanic chain reaching to San Miguel volcano.  A relatively young lava flow is found on the southern flank of Taburete volcano, although its age is not known precisely.  Fumarolic activity continues at Tecapa, the site of a major geothermal project. Photo by Lee Siebert, 1999 (Smithsonian Institution).
