Driving Directions El Salvador
EL SALVADOR is the smallest and most densely populated state in Central America. It is bounded to the north and west by Guatemala, to the north and east by Honduras and the south by the Pacific Ocean. Behind the narrow coastal plain, there is a range of volcanic peaks which overlook a densely populated inland plateau. Further inland the land rises to the interior highlands. The Lempa river cuts through the center of the country and opens to the south as a large sandy delta to the Pacific Ocean.
