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.
Filadelfia is a town in the Gran Chaco desert of western Paraguay and is the capital of the Boqueron department. It is the centre of the Fernheim Colony, the largest of the three Mennonite colonies in the Chaco. Today the town is home to a museum, a library, a radio station and a hospital. The colony's villages lie around Filadelfia, as do several labour camps, home to much of the area's native population, from the Chulupi, Lengua, Toba-Pilaga, Sanapana and Ayoreo groups.

Filadelfiais said the place of best geographical environment and can trace its origins back to prehistoric times. It enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers.
