Colon, Cuba

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.
Colon is a city and town in the west of the Matanzas Province, Cuba. The municipality covers 717 square kilometers and contains the communities of Aguica, Este, Guareiras, Jacan, Laguna Grande, Oeste and Palmillas. The territory is crossed by the rivers Hanabana, Voladores and Palmillas.
Cuba, officially the Republic of Cuba, consists of the island of Cuba, the Isle of Youth and adjacent small islands. Cuba is located in the northern Caribbean at the meeting of the Caribbean Sea, the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. Cuba is the most crowded country in the Caribbean. Its culture and customs draw from numerous sources including the period of Spanish colonialism, the introduction of African slaves, and to a lesser extent, its proximity to the United States.

A city known for its historic myths and traditions, scenic beauty, cooperative people and luxurious hotels and cottages, Colon is one of the favorite holiday destinations for most of the vacation lovers.
