Eraso is the second city in population and importance in Vega, and its main port. It is the capital of the Bailía de Eraso, one of the old traditional regions in the country. The city is among the oldest in the country. The population got over 1.7 million for the first time in the last census, and its conurbation is around 2,5 million inhabitants. Its airport, Aeropuerto Internacional de Eraso-Bolduque, is 30 km far from the city center, halfway to Bolduque. It is a very industrial city, but in the last decade new activities have been promoted, especially tourism, attracted by the city life and the wilderness of the Costa Salvaje, not far from the city.
