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.
Florianopolis is the capital city of Santa Catarina State in southern Brazil. It is comprised of one main island, the Island of Santa Catarina, one continental part and the surrounding small isles. It has a population of 406,564 inhabitants. Its metropolitan area has a population of over 800,000 inhabitants and density 938.9 per square kilometers. The total area is 436.5 square kilometers.

Like some of its sister municipalities and towns, Florianopolis is blessed with beautiful surroundings and a unique natural setting. The picturesque scenery, the majesty of nature, the slow pace of life, and the welcoming nature of its people all combine to make this region one of the most important tourist attractions in Central America.
