I know Lima is not an option in this poll, but i think it should have been considered as a candidate. Here's some pics.

I like cities with mountains in the background (los angeles California with its snow capped mountains) I like Santiago because of that, not so much of the height, but the overall vista. Not taking into account the snow capped mountains PAMANA CITY beats all other cities by a mile... althought Cartagena is closing in.

I love South American skylines, with their amazing density and mixing of the old and the new. These are all worthy candidates, but Sao Paulo gets my vote. It's pure madness...

Panama City Rocks!

If it can sit smugly in Central America and not only be included, but out-poll the best that South America has to offer, is there any doubt that Panama City has the very best skyline in all of Latin America?

Given the skyscraper construction boom currently in progress, in less than a decade from now, Panama City will be vying for top honors among the big boys (Hong Kong, Chicago, New York City) on the world stage, not only in density, but in sheer visual impact.

Skyline Debate

Lima, Santiago, Quito, La Paz, Bogota, Caracas, etc. are all beautiful cities, most (if not all) of them backdropped by snow-capped mountains, but they're out of their league as competitors for, best, let's say, "Latin" American skyline. It would be interesting to have them compete amongst themselves, however. Frankly, the mid-rise buildings are too low, sparse and of little contrast in height.


Bogota and La Paz have the better contrasts in height among these, but the prominent structures are too few and far between. The rest of 'em, while not rising to the occasion, if you will, their buildings are almost of equal height. While the same argument could be made against Sao Paulo and Buenos Aires, their density compensate nicely. In short, what they lack in height contrasts, they make up for in sheer density, making them visually compelling and worthy of consideration among the elite skylines.


Panama City excels by virtue of the jagged silhouette of it's skyline.
