Panama City has a great skyline, but I don't like the buildings....
I love São Paulo, it's the most impressive city I've ever been.
But here I'll go with Santiago, a mix of nice building, with wonderful mountains on the back....best skyline in L.A for me. And one of the most beautiful settings behind Cape Town and Rio.

i think all the cities mentiones are nice, but santiago is more than that. i see a piece of distinction and elegance in the environment.

Tough'n this is. I'm pretty much split between BA and Panama--my vote went to Pananma, I guess mainly because it has more of a focal point...but still it's a tie for me.

Best South American Skyline

Wjfox2002:

You're not quite that good. Don't mean to burst your bubble, but Panama City is not in South America. There was a time one could make that argument, as Panama was once a province of Colombia before it seceded in 1903. But I can understand your eagerness to include Panama's capital in your poll, due to the visual impact of it's skyline. However, a better title to your poll would've been "Best Latin American Skyline." That way, you could toss Mexico City into the mix, although a poll of the the same title was already posted in the "City vs City" forum, which by the way, was won by - you guessed it - Panama City.

Needless to say (see username), my vote here is for Panama City, as I am simultaneously objective, as well as shamelessly biased...

Man, this is too hard. I really can't choose. But they know what density is in SA.

I'll say Santiago because it's a great mix of buildings and the Andes are incredible. I love the Andes mints too, so I might have somewhat of a bias.

Panama City is from Central America! It's not a South American city.

The farthest south I've personally been is Cuernavaca, Mexico, but I love Latin America! Panama City is nice, but has too many residential high rises for me. I want to see more commercial office buildings in a downtown. Rio has unbelievable physical beauty and a fairly attractive downtown. Sao Paulo is enourmous and really has a couple of downtown clusters. Santiago is extremely attractive and has a nice downtown, but it needs more high rise density.

I choose Buenos Aires. After seeing this photo, how can I not?
