El Salvador is a republic on the Pacific Coast of Central America, bordering the North Pacific Ocean, between Guatemala and Honduras. As the smallest country in the region, El Salvador is second only to Guatemala in population, and is the most densely populated republic on the mainland of the Americas. Although traditionally a rural country, it has experienced extensive migration to urban areas in the 20th century, and nearly one-third of its population lives within the metropolitan area of San Salvador, the capital and largest city. The country was named El Salvador, which is Spanish for "the saviour," in honour of Jesus Christ.
