More about El Salvador

  • ITYPETRAVEL: Latest statistics of population in the country of El Salvador, including languages spoken, urban population, birth rate, fertility rate and life expectancy for both men and women.


The country borders on Guatemala and Honduras and the Pacific. It is the only state in Central America without access to the Caribbean and thus to the Atlantic. With the exception of a narrow, hot, humid coastline, El Salvador is fertile hill country and mountainous country. The central high plateau, 400–500 m above sea level, with grasslands and lakes, is bordered by two mountain ranges. In the southern mountain range there are 14 volcanoes, some of which are still active, for example the 2,381 m high Santa Ana. The high plateau is crossed by the only major river, the Río Lempa. The San Salvador volcano (1 967 m) borders the capital. Check cellphoneexplorer to see Central America Travel Guide.

The climate is humid and tropical with a rainy season from May to October. The annual mean temperature is 23 ° C with fluctuations between 10 ° C and 40 ° C depending on the altitude.

El Salvador is mainly used for agriculture. Forest, about 13.2% of the area, has only survived on mountain slopes. A remnant of the original cloud forest (Montecristo National Park) lies in the triangle of El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala in the north of the country and has been declared a nature reserve. There are mangroves on the coast.

The clearing of the forests in favor of coffee bushes leads to soil erosion and, in the event of heavy rainfall, often to the sliding of partially populated mountain slopes. Other environmental problems include air and water pollution and inadequate recycling of rubbish.

The animal world is represented by coatis and wild boars, iguanas and alligators, flamingos, hummingbirds and parrots as well as a few monkeys and pumas.

Population and Religion

Around 86% of the population are descendants from the union of Europeans and members of the indigenous population (mestizos), the remaining 14% are indigenous, especially Kakawira and Pipil, as well as whites. In terms of social structure, there is a strong contrast between the landowning, influential white upper class and the broad class of small farmers and day laborers. Due to increasing rural exodus, the proportion of the urban population (2017) is 68%. Over 2.5 million Salvadorans live and work abroad, mainly in the USA, Mexico and neighboring countries. Around a third of the people live below the poverty line. Despite significant progress, general health care is still underdeveloped, especially in rural areas.

50% of the population belong to the Catholic Church, 36% to Protestant denominations and 2% to other religions. An estimated 12% of the population are devoid of religious affiliations.


Some Mayan buildings from the pre-Columbian period have been preserved, including the cult center at Tazumal and the ruins of Joya de Ceren. The latter offer an insight into the everyday life of the rural residents around 600 AD. An eruption of the nearby volcanoes completely destroyed the city and buried it under a layer of ash four to six meters high. Joya de Ceren is also called the »Pompeii of America«.

The Spanish conquistadors, who conquered the country from 1524/25, named it after Jesus Christ El Salvador: “The Redeemer”. The cultural center is the capital San Salvador with important churches, theaters, museums and libraries. The “Catedral Metropolitana de San Salvador” is the archbishop’s seat of the Roman Catholic diocese of San Salvador and an important pilgrimage site. Because this is where the grave of Archbishop Oscar Romero (* 1917, † 1980), who was murdered by right-wing terrorists in 1980, is located. This had been resolute in promoting respect for human rights, social justice and an end to the civil war.

The nation’s first well-known lyric poet and epic poet was Francisco Gavidia (* 1863, † 1955). Roque Dalton (* 1935, † 1970), the country’s most important poet, was committed to social justice. He was murdered while fighting the military government. The folkloric music in El Salvador is a mixture of indigenous and Spanish elements, while the pop music is strongly based on American models. Of the many religious festivals, the Easter processions, especially those in the town of Sonsonate on the Izalco volcano, attract the most participants.
