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, north and east by Honduras, and the south by the Pacific Ocean. A range of volcanic peaks behind the narrow coastal plain overlooks 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.
