Campos dos Goitacazes

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.
Campos dos Goitacazes is a city located in the North of Rio de Janeiro State in Brazil. Its name comes from the geographical characteristic of the region, very flat with fields and from the Goytacazes Indians, that inhabitated the region. It has the biggest oil reserves in Brazil, located in Bacia de Campos, some miles from the shore of Cabo de Sao Tome. It was the first place in South America to have electric light, in the 19th century.
Brazil is the largest and most populous country in South America; and the fifth largest in the world in both area and population. Spanning a vast area between central South America and the Atlantic Ocean, it is the easternmost country of America and borders every other South American country other than Ecuador and Chile.

Campos dos Goitacazes is definitely one of the popular tourist attractions in Central America worth paying a visit while touring the country. This place leaves a pleasing and unforgettable memory and justifies the proud cultural tradition of Central America.
