Taburete is a stratovolcano in central El Salvador, rising above the coastal plain between the San Vicente and San Miguel volcanoes, and just west of Usulután volcano. It is topped by a well-preserved, 150–300 m (490–980 ft) deep summit crater, with the true summit on the south side of the crater rim.
