La Pampa

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 Pampa is a province of Argentina and is located in the Pampas in the centre of the country. In 1604 Hernandarias was the first explorer to reach the area later explored by Jeronimo Luis de Cabrera in 1662. The territory was divided between the officers, and the first settlements were erected. The Territorio Nacional de La Pampa Central was created in 1884, containing the Rio Negro province and parts of other surrounding provinces, and around 25.000 inhabitants. In 1915 there were already 110.000. In 1945 the territory was divided and La Pampa became a province.

La Pampais 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.
