Ciudad Bolivar

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.
Ciudad Bolivar is the capital of the eastern Venezuelan state of Bolivar. In 2000, the population of the city was 312,691. The city lies at a spot where the Orinoco narrows to about 1.6 kilometers in width and is the site of the first bridge across the river. Ciudad Bolivar's historic centre is in a good state of preservation, with charming colonial buildings around the Plaza Bolivar, including a cathedral. The town also gave its name to the Angostura tree which grows in the area. The city served as the headquarters of the national revolutionary government.  
Venezuela, officially the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, is a country on the northern coast of South America. Comprising a continental mainland and several islands in the Caribbean Sea, Venezuela borders Guyana to the east, Brazil to the south and Colombia to the west. Trinidad and Tobago, Curacao, Bonaire, Aruba, and the Leeward Antilles lie just north of the Venezuelan coast. The state capital is Guanare.

Ciudad Bolivar is the kind of town you daydream about. It is a city with endless recreational opportunities, rich history, and modern day luxuries.
