This is a list of Central American supercentenarians. Current validated data suggest that the climate of this region has a positive impact on extreme longevity. The number of cases older than 114 years seems to be higher than normal ... however, data for earlier ages (110–113) may be underrepresented. Data mining in this area is expected to contribute to a more complete understanding of the supercentenary population profile over time.

As the vast majority of the Central American population is of Roman Catholic faith, the absence of original birth certificates can in many cases be compensated for by using baptismal records to verify an applicant's veracity. The availability and accessibility of these records depends on factors such as the applicant's social class, local / national privacy laws, the willingness of the applicant's family and / or caregivers to cooperate with an age validation organization, etc.

For an unvalidated case to be listed, there must be a considerable chance of future verification.
