Leticia, Amazonas

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. 
Leticia, Colombia, is a small city of approximately 37,000 inhabitants on the left bank of the Amazon River, and at the point where Colombia, Brazil and Peru, come together in an area called Tres Fronteras. Leticia is the capital of the department of Amazonas, and Colombia's southernmost town as well as its only major port on the river.

Leticiais 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.
