The 70% of the traffic of my site is from an specific country in the South of South America.
The origin server is in Miami, US.
However my pages are served from servers in San Francisco Califonia;
Is there a workaround to have the site delivered from a near place?
Example of tracert;

How are you determining that? If you use Whois on any Cloudflare address they will return the address of a Cloudflare office (their HQ is in San Francisco). Cloudflare use the same addresses in all of their POPs, and use Anycast routing to get the request sent to the closest POP. You can identify which POP served a given request by looking at the cf-ray header. The last three characters are the POP that served the request. You can find a list of all the POPs and the airport codes on cloudflarestatus.com
Routing does not always return the physically closest POP, and sometimes your ISP will send the requests to a POP that is further away. (Cloudflare will also prioritise paid plans if a POP is is experiencing heavy load)
I checked the list of the sites:
1.None of them is meant for traffic from South America,
2.They are sites in English, and one for Italian traffic.
3.The 2 sites that have EZE are one in english .com and the other for italian traffic domain.it
4.They are all from San Francisco California IP except one that is from Amsterdam.
I want to try what happens if I dont have Cloudflare.
If I gray the Clouds, to pause Cloudflare:
That means that the request will be directly to Ezoic servers, and Ezoic servers will deliver the pages?
I am only avoiding Cloudflare caching?
