This article comprises four sortable tables of mountain summits of Central America that are the higher than any other point north or south of their latitude or east or west their longitude in the region.

The summit of a mountain or hill may be measured in three principal ways:

  1. The topographic elevation of a summit measures the height of the summit above a geodetic sea level.
  2. The topographic prominence of a summit is a measure of how high the summit rises above its surroundings.
  3. The topographic isolation (or radius of dominance) of a summit measures how far the summit lies from its nearest point of equal elevation.

Westernmost high summits

Volcán Tacaná and Volcán Tajumulco are the two highest summits of Central America.
