Volcán el Cántaro, viewed here looking SW from the Cerro Usmajac cinder cone, is the oldest and northernmost of the Cántaro-Colima chain of volcanoes that rises above the floor of the Colima rift zone. The Cántaro massif is erosionally modified, but has many well-preserved andesitic-dacitic lava domes on its northern and eastern flanks. As with the southward-migrating volcanism of the Cántaro-Colima chain as a whole, volcanic vents at Cántaro itself are progressively younger to the south.
