El Salvador has a tropical climate with pronounced wet and dry seasons. Temperatures vary primarily with elevation and show little seasonal change. The Pacific lowlands are uniformly hot; the central plateau and mountain areas are more moderate.

Spanish is the main and official language of El Salvador. The local Spanish vernacular is called Caliche. Nahuat is the indigenous language that has survived, though it is only used by small communities of elderly Salvadorans in western El Salvador.

The Salvadorian colon (SVC) is divided into 100 centavos. While colones are still accepted, the primary currency of El Salvador is the U.S.

The population of El Salvador in 2003 was estimated by the United Nations at 6, 515, 000, which placed it as number 97 in population among the 193 nations of the world. In that year approximately 5% of the population was over 65 years of age, with another 36% of the population under 15 years of age.
