The eastern side of the Volcán el Cántaro complex, seen here from Volcán Apaxtepec, a cinder cone NE of Nevado de Colima volcano, rises above the floor of the Colima rift zone. Cántaro is the oldest and northernmost volcano of the Cántaro-Colima volcanic complex, which extends south through Nevado de Colima to the historically active Volcán de Colima. Cántaro is erosionally modified, but has many well-preserved andesitic-dacitic lava domes on its northern and eastern flanks, including Cerro el Capulín on the far right horizon.
