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.
Rancagua is a municipality in central Chile, and capital of the O'Higgins Region. In 2002, the population of the city was 206,971. The main economic activities go from mining activity, tourism, agriculture, wood industry, food production and services to minor industrial activities. The city also serves as the administrative and legal center of the region.
In recent years the city has become one of the most gorgeous cultural and tourist spots in the O'Higgins Region mainly for the vineyards that are located near of it and also for the well-known project to build a Casino in the city. There are also some very interesting arhceological spots, sport centers and cultural trips to smaller and more typical villages and towns. The city is connected with Santiago by the Panamerican Highway.

A city known for its historic myths and traditions, scenic beauty, cooperative people and luxurious hotels and cottages, Rancagua is one of the favorite holiday destinations for most of the vacation lovers.
