El Alto

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.
The city of El Alto is a suburb of La Paz, Bolivia, located on the Altiplano highlands while La Paz is constructed in a canyon. In 2001, the population of the city was 649,958.
