Puente Alto

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.
Puente Alto is a commune of Chile, in the Metropolitan Region of Santiago, which forms part of Gran Santiago and is the capital of the Province of Cordillera. As of 2006, it had a population of roughly 600,000. Chile, officially the Republic of Chile is a country in South America occupying a long and narrow coastal strip wedged between the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean.

Puente Alto experiences a boom with day tourists, owing to the clear air, town character with rich culture, high quality of life and conspicuously original history. The picturesque scenery, the majesty of nature, the slow pace of life, and the welcoming nature of its people also combine to make this region one of the most important tourist attractions in Central America.
