The broad Chiltepe Peninsula rises to the SE across the flood-stained waters of Lake Managua.  Apoyeque caldera lies beyond its horizontal rim on the right-center horizon.  The 11-km-wide peninsula extends into Lake Managua and marks the northern limit of a segment of the central Nicaraguan volcanic chain that is offset to the east.
