Regarding landforms, here we locate and identify the major Central America volcanos, as the istmus is geologically active, with volcanic eruptions and subsequent earthquakes occurring on a somewhat frequent basis. In fact, in modern times, these landforms (volcanos) have devasted many cities and killed hundreds of people in Central America.
Central America has many volcanic mountain ranges; the longest are the Sierra Madre de Chiapas in Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras; the Cordillera Isabelia in Nicaragua, and the Cordillera de Talamanca running through Costa Rica and Panama.
