Momotombo Volcano

Western Nicaragua is lined with active volcanoes, and their frequent eruptions have produced soil that is among the most fertile in Central America. The country is also subject to very severe earthquakes. Its landscape ranges from tropical rain forest and marshes to forested mountain slopes.
