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. 

Chichigalpa is a municipality in the Chinandega department of Nicaragua. Chichigalpa is 124 kilometers from Managua. Chichigalpa is located at the foot of the San Cristobal volcano, the highest volcano in the Maribios range of Nicaragua at 1745 meters above sea level.

Nicaragua is a democratic republic in Central America. It is the largest nation in the isthmus, but also the least densely populated with a demographic similar in size to its smaller neighbours. The country is bordered on the north by Honduras and on the south by Costa Rica. Its western coastline is on the Pacific Ocean, while the east side of the country is on the Caribbean Sea. Chinandega is a department in Nicaragua, located on the border with Honduras.

Chichigalpa is known for being the location of Nicaragua's best known rum, Flor de Cana, and the site of Compania Licorera de Nicaragua, South Africa. Chichigalpa is also known as the town of best geographical environment and has traced its origins back to prehistoric times. Today, one can also learn about its history, from its earliest times and can also enjoy its natural beauty concealed by the beautiful landscapes.
