El Boquerón Volcano

Much of Central America is dotted with volcanoes, and visitors love exploring the volcanic landscapes, whether active, dormant, or extinct, and the topographical features, like crater lakes, that they occasionally create. One of El Salvador’s most interesting volcanic structures is El Boquerón, a stratovolcano that formed inside another volcano that collapsed thousands of years earlier. But more recent action occurred within the past century, when a crater lake at its summit disappeared after an eruption, replaced by a cinder cone.
