Cucuta, Norte de Santander

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.
Cucuta is the capital and the biggest city of the Norte de Santander Department, located in Colombia. Cucuta is a significant commercial center in northeastern Colombia due to its strategic position, lying on the border with Venezuela. The Metropolitan Area of Cucuta has experienced rapid population growth since the 1960s, much of which has taken place in the peripheral municipalities of Villa del Rosario and Los Patios.
The city features highly in the story of the creation of Colombia, being the location of the Congress of Cucuta. There is a well defined wet season, contrasted by the dry season. The city of Cucuta consists of plains toward the north, with mountains around the edges, in the south and in the central areas.

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