The Latin American Giant Observatory (LAGO) is an extended cosmic ray observatory, which consists in a wide network of water Cherenkov detectors (WCDs) located in nine different countries. The geographic distribution of the LAGO sites, with different altitudes and geomagnetic rigidity cut-offs, combined with the new electronic system for control, atmospheric sensing and data acquisition on board of each detector, allow the realization of multiple and variated astrophysics, space physics and atmospherics physics studies at regional scale. This work will describe the LAGO sites and the capabilities of the LAGO detection network spanned across Latin America.
