La Habana

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.
La Habana is the capital of Cuba. The city also forms one of the 14 provinces of Cuba. With a population of more than 2.2 million, Havana is the largest city in both Cuba and the Caribbean. It is located just over 144 kilometers south-southwest of Key West, Florida. It is located on the northwest coast of Cuba, facing the Straits of Florida, and is surrounded by the province of Havana to the south, east and west.

Havana City is the smallest of the Cuban provinces, but the most populated. There are different architectural styles in the city, from houses of the XVII to modern constructions. Havana is the most important destination for tourists in Cuba and one of the most important in Latin America.
