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.
Esteli is the second largest city in northern Nicaragua and is located within the municipality of Esteli in the Esteli department. It is located on the Pan-American Highway 150 kilometers north of Managua. The population of the city is about 119,000 and growing. It was also the scene of heavy fighting in the war between the Sandinista National Liberation Front and the Contras.

Esteliis definitely one of the popular tourist attractions in Central America worth paying a visit while touring the country. This place leaves a pleasing and unforgettable memory and justifies the proud cultural tradition of Central America.
