Cosiguina Volcano

One of the westernmost points in NICARAGUA, Cosiguina Volcano (Volcán Cosigüina) last erupted in 1951 and is a stratovolcano now virtually completely covered in forests. Cosiguina's highest point stands at 872 meters and 2,861 feet. It is part of a peninsula stretching westward into the Gulf of Fonseca (Golfo de Fonseca), Guatemala Basin, and North Pacific Ocean and is not too far south of Honduras. Laguna Cosiguina sits in the middle of the volcano's caldera. Finally, the Cosiguina Volcano Natural Reserve surrounds the volcano.
