The 1935 Central American and Caribbean Games were the third Central American Games, but the first to include the Caribbean label as well as the Games to connote the larger scale of the event. They were held from March 24 through April 7 in San Salvador, El Salvador. The Games were controversial as Cuba accused Nicaragua, Panama and Mexico of using pros. Mexico withdrew from the Games as a result.

Flag of Cuba Cuba won Gold easily at 8-1. Manuel Fortes (.357), Francisco Hernandez (.444, the best in the Games) and Jose Luis Garcia (a tourney-high 13 runs, 5 homers and 6 steals) led the offense. Fortes also went 3-0 to lead the staff. Fortes also went 3-0 to lead all pitchers.

Flag of Panama Panama went 5-3 and was the only team to beat Cuba, but 2 losses in the final round meant that they split Silver.

Flag of Nicaragua Nicaragua was 4-4 and split Silver by going 1-2 in the final round. H. Carter tied for the most homers, 5.

Flag of El Salvador El Salvador finished 4th at 2-3.

Flag of Guatemala Guatemala placed 5th at 1-4.

Flag of Honduras Honduras was last at 0-5.
