Sao Paulo without a shadow doubt.
The largest and most spectacular city in Latin America and the Southern Hemisphere

Actually, not.

According to the national institutes:

São Paulo Metro Area: 20,820,093
Mexico City Metro Area (Valle de México): 20,116,842

ftp://ftp.ibge.gov.br/Estimativas_de..._2013_dou.pdf/

http://www.inegi.org.mx/Sistemas/mul..._de_Mexico.zip

Whatever, São Paulo is the most important, it has the biggest GDP by far.

That info must be wrong, as most sources put Mexico City over Sao Paulo.

And if you polled people on what the most spectacular city is in South America you'd probably get 95% saying either Buenos Aires or Rio de Janeiro. Sao Paulo isn't on people's radars outside of Brazil.

Those are the Census numbers from 2010 for Mexico and 2013 for Brazil. How convenient. Considering Mexico City gains 200,000 people per year that puts Mexico City at around 20,716,000 without Toluca. Mexico City's population using Brazilian methodology is about 23,500,000.

Yes, I haven't noticed that. I used the latest numbers available on the official institutes.

Those are the numbers using the same year (2010):

Mexico City: 20,116,842
São Paulo: 19,822,572

BTW, if Mexico City is growing 0.9% per year (according to your source, average 2000-2010), it could be so for 2013:

São Paulo: 20,820,093
Mexico City: 20,664,899

Sao Paulo is not growing faster than Mexico City. The fastest growing parts of Mexico City are the exurbs which aren't in the metropolitan area of 'Valle de Mexico'. Using different methodologies is wrong, no matter how much you tweak. You still have a Brazilian methodology that is less strict.

Here's Demographia's numbers, which follows one methodology, and they have a good track record and reputation

Top 10 in the Western Hemisphere
Bogota: 9,009,000
Buenos Aires: 13,776,000
Chicago: 9,104,000
Lima: 9,400,000
Los Angeles: 15,067,000
Mexico City: 20,032,000

New York: 20,673,000
Rio de Janeiro: 11,616,000
Sao Paulo: 20,568,000
Toronto: 6,184,000

http://www.demographia.com/db-worldua.pdf
You can use this to argue your point but not national statistics agencies with different standards. I still disagree that Sao Paulo is bigger but at least there are objective sources backing up your claim.

There are different studies and methodologies for this, but I would say (as most sources, including the one you showed above) that São Paulo is ahead of Mexico City, in population, and obviously also in GDP and GDP per capita.

BTW, São Paulo is growing more than 1.5% per year (2010-2013) in population, that's more than Mexico City.

Buenos Aires: 13,776,000
Chicago: 9,104,000

New York: 20,673,000
Rio de Janeiro: 11,616,000
Sao Paulo: 20,568,000
Toronto: 6,184,000

Here's a 2020 Linear Projection based on their Base Year-Current Year Changes:
Bogota: 10,197,000
Buenos Aires: 14,723,000
Chicago: 9,293,000
Dallas-Fort Worth: 6,871,000
Lima: 10,473,000
Los Angeles: 16,000,000
Mexico City: 21,857,000

Miami: 6,509,000
New York: 21,389,000
Rio de Janeiro: 12,353,000
San Francisco: 6,515,000
Santiago: 6,668,000
Sao Paulo: 22,127,000
Toronto: 6,499,000

The only major change since then is that Toronto goes from #10 to #14, New York goes from #1 to #3, and Bogota passes Chicago. Mexico City does narrow the gap from 530,000 under Sao Paulo to 275,000. That at least shows that Mexico City is growing faster.

Very interesting. Thanks for posting.

Here's a list (from your source), showing the largest cities of Latin America by urbanized area (the real size of the cities):

1. São Paulo: 3,173 km²
2. Buenos Aires: 2,642 km²
3. Mexico City: 2,046 km²
4. Rio de Janeiro: 2,020 km²
5. Belo Horizonte: 1,088 km²

You can check it on page 96.

By density, the real winner is Dhaka, Bangladesh which manages to shove 14,399,000 into 324 square kilometers . That's 44,500 per sq.km.

In Latin America the densest city is Bogota with 9,009,000 in 414 sq.km and 21,700 per sq.km. Then comes Medellin followed by Bucaramanga, Cali and Maracaibo. Had no clue Colombian cities were that dense.

The least dense Latin Urban Area is San German, Puerto Rico with 118,000 in 246 sq.km.

So Buenos Aires is bigger than Mexico City? I think I had read that somewhere else.
