Physical map of El Salvador
Information about the geography of SalvadorTwo parallel mountain ranges cross El Salvador east to west with a central plateau between them and a narrow coastal plain hugging the Pacific. These physical features divide the country into two physiographic regions. The mountain ranges and central plateau covering 85 percent of the land comprise the interior highlands. The remaining coastal plains are referred to as the Pacific lowlands.
The highest point in the country is the Cerro El Pital, which rises to 2730 meters.
