Guazapa volcano an eroded basaltic stratovolcano 23 km NE of San Salvador city. It is not known whether the Pleistocene volcano is still active. It shows signs of intense erosion that have cut deep valleys into its flanks, suggestin a very long dormany period, and there is no crater morphology left.
However, Cerro Macanze is a scoria cone at the SE base of the volcano, which is considered by some to be only a few thousands of years old.
