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. 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.
Valencia is the capital city of Carabobo State and the third biggest city of Venezuela. The city is an economic hub that contains Venezuela's top industries and manufacturing companies. The population of Valencia reached some 1.2 million in the year 2003. Valencia is known for its ethnic and international diversity and it is a relatively progressive city. It is greatly underrated, partially due to its proximity to Caracas. The city has been an active participant of Venezuela's history. Valencia was founded by Captain Alonso Diaz Moreno on March 25, 1555. The city is well connected with the rest of the country by a network of highways and roads. 
Venezuela, officially the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, is a country on the northern coast of South America. Comprising a continental mainland and several islands in the Caribbean Sea, Venezuela borders Guyana to the east, Brazil to the south and Colombia to the west. Trinidad and Tobago, Curacao, Bonaire, Aruba, and the Leeward Antilles lie just north of the Venezuelan coast. The state capital is Guanare.

Valencia is the kind of town you daydream about. It is a city with endless recreational opportunities, rich history, and modern day luxuries.
