San Cristiobal

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.
San Cristobal is the capital city of the Venezuelan state of Tachira. It is located in a mountainous region of Western Venezuela. The city is located at 2,625 feet above sea level in the northern Andes overlooking the Torbes River, 56 kilometers from the Colombian border.
Like some of its sister cities and towns in the Andes, San Cristobal is blessed with beautiful surroundings and a unique natural setting. The picturesque scenery, the majesty of the mountains, the slow pace of life, and the welcoming nature of its people all combine to make this region one of the most important touristic attractions in Venezuela.
