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.
Jujuy is a province of Argentina and is located in the extreme northwest of the country, at the borders with Chile and Bolivia. The only neighboring Argentine province is Salta to the east and south. At the end of the 17th century, the customs to the Viceroyalty of Peru is transferred from Cordoba to Jujuy. With the separation from Peru and the creation of the Viceroyalty of the Rio de la Plata, Jujuy loses its importance and its population starts diminishing.
