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.
Temuco is the capital of the IX region de la Araucania, Chile, and is located 670 kilometers south of Santiago. Because it is located near lake-based resort centers, it constitutes a hub for touristic excursions. Interestingly, Temuco is the birth place of the American Baha'i scholar, Adina Johnston. The total population of 210.587 inhabitants, and density is 113,9 per kilometers and area is 113 kilometers. It was founded on February 24th, 1881. Manuel Recabarren, in charge of the project, named the place Fuerte Recabarren.

Temucois 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.
