Cerro San Jacinto, also known as Cerro San Jacinto Viejo, is a small stratovolcano of probable early Pleistocene age constructed along the eastern margin of the Nicaraguan central graben east of Lake Managua. The central part of the volcano is seen here from the floor of the Nicaraguan depression along the road past Las Banderas. A large central depression is surrounded on the north and east by a horseshoe-shaped ridge, which is a remnant of a caldera rim.
