Image Caption: Ometepe Island, Lake Nicaragua, Nicaragua
Ometepe Island is the largest island in the largest lake (Lake
Nicaragua) in Central America. The island is composed of two volcanoes,
Concepcion and La Madera, joined together by a narrow isthmus 3 km (2
mi) wide. Concepcion volcano on the northwest part of the island is
1610m (5282 ft) high and has erupted at least 24 times since 1883. The
last major eruption was in 1986. La Madera is the smaller volcano
located on the southeast part of the island. This volcano has not
erupted in the last 10000 years and is covered by a dense rainforest.
Ometepe Island is about 8 km (5 miles) from the mainland and has an
estimated population of 9000.
