stratovolcano 1172 m / 3,845 ft
El Salvador, 13.44°N / -88.53°W
Current status: normal or dormant (1 out of 5)

Taburete volcano is a basaltic to basaltic-andesite stratovolcano rising above the Pacific coastal plain east of the Río Lempa in El Salvador, located at the SW end of a cluster of volcanoes between San Vincente and San Miguel volcanoes.
Volcan Taburete contains a well-preserved, 150-300 m deep summit crater lowest on the eastern side. It is unknown whether Taburete has been active in the past 10,000 years. Possible candidates include a lava flow on the southern flank, and the flank cone Loma Pacha, with a thick, 1 km long lava flow located on the lower SE flank.
