The Apoyeque caldera to the left and the Xiloá Maar to the right are part of the Apoyeque volcanic complex shown in this December 2019 Planet Labs satellite image monthly mosaic (N is at the top; this image is approximately 27 km across). Apoyeque is one of 11 features within the Chiltepe Volcanic Complex at the northern end of the Nejapa Volcanic Field. The ridge to the ENE of the caldera is composed of cones, domes, and lava flows, and Cerro Talpetate is south of the maar.
