Details for: San Vicente
Massive San Vicente stratovolcano has twin peaks known as Las Chiches. San Vicente, seen here from the north along the Pan-American highway, has been modified by erosion, and only the poorly preserved remains of the eastern crater persist. The age of the most recent eruption of San Vicente, also known as Chichontepec, is not known. Reports of historical eruptions in 1643 and 1855 are false, but numerous hot springs and fumaroles are found on the flanks of the volcano. Photo by Kristal Dorion, 1994 (U.S. Geological Survey).
