I think I'm changing my mind, I think Panama City does have the best skyline in Latam. It's so aesthetically pleasing and futuristic

A train exists, but not the train pictured in the photo, which runs at an impossible height.

Mexico City first? Santiago, only has one tall building...

Let see this ranking: http://www.emporis.com/statistics/skyline-ranking

They measure number of buildings and number of floors. More floors, more points, but it is not a linear scale.
Points per Building
12 - 19 Floors = 1 Point
20 - 29 Floors = 5 Points
30 - 39 Floors = 25 Points
40 - 49 Floors = 50 Points
50 - 59 Floors = 100 Points
60 - 69 Floors = 200 Points
70 - 79 Floors = 300 Points
80 - 89 Floors = 400 Points
90 - 99 Floors = 500 Points
100 or more Floors = 600 Points
List of the top 100, only showing Latin America.
Code:
#	City		Population	Area size	Number of buildings	Points
8	São Paulo	11,316,149	1,523 km² (588 mi²)	5,789		18,442
19	Panama City	880,691		2,560 km² (988 mi²)	241		9,008
27	Rio de Janeiro	6,323,037	1,182 km² (456 mi²)	2,595		5,846
32	Buenos Aires	2,891,082	200 km² (77 mi²)	1,714		5,111
35	Recife		1,555,039	218 km² (84 mi²)	1,108		4,966
53	Mexico City	8,864,370	1,487 km² (574 mi²)	1,384		3,328
55	Curitiba	1,797,408	435 km² (168 mi²)	862		3,229

^ For me, Emporis it's a very OutDated data base.
If we try to consider this kind of measure, we must have more recent data.
Evenmore, Wikipedia could be more reliable source than emporis.

Anyway, everybody has different opinions and tastes to consider what could be "Beautiful" talking or considering about skylines.

Saludos!
