Cerro Alutate is a small Quaternary stratovolcano located well north of the Guatemalan volcanic front, about 20 km north of Lake Ayarza. It is part of the so called Behind-Volcanic-Front region (Walker, 1981; Libbey et al., 2015). Other areas of Quaternary volcanics are found to the NW and NE in a region of mostly Tertiary volcanic rocks, south of the Motagua fault system.
