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.
Corrientes is a region in northeast Argentina, in the Mesopotamia region. It is surrounded by Paraguay, the province of Misiones, Brazil and the provinces of Entre Rios, Santa Fe and Chaco. The city of Corrientes was founded on April 3, 1588 by Juan Torres de Vera y Aragon as a mid-stop between Asuncion and Buenos Aires. Culture in Corrientes has been mainly informed and influenced by its European roots.
As part of the subtropical area of Mesopotamia, the region has heavy rains and high temperatures with little daily and seasonal variation especially in the North and no dry season. The Southern part of the province presents some signs of the neighbouring more moderate weather of the Pampas. Corrientes is surrounded by two rivers, the Uruguay River to the east, and the Parana River to the northwest, that contour the shape of the province.

Corrientes is the kind of town you daydream about. It is an attractive city with natural beauty and historical places, while traveling in Central America.
