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.
Tucuman is a province of Argentina, located in the northwest of the country. The capital is San Miguel de Tucuman, often short Tucuman. The total area is 22,524 square kilometers with population is 1,338,523 and density is 59.42 per square kilometers.
The economy of the province is strongly based in the sugarcane, with 2,300 square kilometers and the sugar production, 60 percentage of the country. After the sugar crisis of the 1960s, Tucuman tried to diversify its crops, and now cultivates, among others, lemon, strawberry, kiwi, beanss, maize, alfalfa, and soybean. Cattle, sheep and goats are raised, but mainly for local consumption.

Like some of its sister municipalities and towns, Tucuman is blessed with beautiful surroundings and a unique natural setting. The picturesque scenery, the majesty of nature, the slow pace of life, and the welcoming nature of its people all combine to make this region one of the most important tourist attractions in Central America.
