Main article: Central America

This article comprises three sortable tables of major mountain peaks of Central America. This article defines Central America as the seven nations of Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama.

Topographic elevation is the vertical distance above the reference geoid, a precise mathematical model of the Earth's sea level as an equipotential gravitational surface. Topographic prominence is the elevation difference between the summit and the highest or key col to a higher summit. Topographic isolation is the minimum great circle distance to a point of higher elevation.

This article defines a significant summit as a summit with at least 100 meters (330 feet) of topographic prominence, and a major summit as a summit with at least 500 meters (1,600 feet) of topographic prominence. An ultra-prominent summit is a summit with at least 1,500 meters (4,900 feet) of topographic prominence.

Highest major summits[edit]

The following sortable table lists the 15 highest mountain peaks of Central America with at least 500 meters (1,600 feet) of topographic prominence.

The first two of these summits each have at least 4,000 meters (13,000 feet) of topographic elevation and at least 500 meters (1,600 feet) of topographic prominence.
