Central America is the central geographic region of the Americas. It is variably defined either as being a region of the Americas in its own right or as the southern portion of North America. Physiographically, Central America is a tropical isthmus that connects North and South America. It includes 7 countries and many small offshore islands. Overall, the land is fertile and rugged, and dominated through its heart by a string of volcanic mountain ranges with a few active volcanos.

Cabudare is a city in Lara State, in Venezuela, and capital of the Palavecino municipality. Located at an elevation of 400 meters on the Turbio River, it is on the major west-central freeway, the Autopista Centro Occidental. Due to the growth of the economy in Barquisimeto, Cabudare has become a bedroom community, with new housing construction replacing the sugar cane fields. A minority of the population are still engaged in agriculture within the municipality. The city has 59,671 inhabitants  2001, which represents 44.4 percent of the total population of the Palavecino municipality.

It can also be considered as the preeminent, historical and potential tourism destination that enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers to become one of the most visited places.
