Ciudad Guayana

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 Guayana is a municipality in Bolivar State, Venezuela. It lies south of the Orinoco, where the river is joined by the Caroni River. The city, officially founded in 1961, is actually composed of the old town of San Felix and the new town of Puerto Ordaz. With approximately 800,000 people, it is a big city by Venezuelan standards. It is also the country's fastest-growing city, due to its important iron industry. It's one of Venezuela's five most important ports, since most goods produced in Bolivar are shipped through it into the Atlantic Ocean, via the Orinoco River. Ciudad Guayana is also the location of the Second Orinoco crossing.

Central America is a popular travel destination for visitors and globe trotters from all over the world who appreciate its beautiful landscapes, rich culture, various local cuisine, hospitality and safety.
