You might want to see this blog post in the ESRI Mapping Center. ETOPO1 is a similar dataset, and the same principles should apply.

Keep in mind that GEBCO is quite high resolution, so it might not be the best choice for e.g. small-scale or global maps.

Shaded relief will add some life to the map as well, and something you might want to consider!

Thanks Hugo
The DEM is for El Salvador and part of the Pacific Ocean, it is a small part.
