Exactly...some cities have tall builidings which are horrible and would look better if they were not there.

BTW my favorite is Santiago I love the skyline it looks A LOT more fancy than the rest. My second option would be Buenos Aires.

Well...Latin America definitely has numerous cities with beautiful skyline.
Buenos Aires, Santiago got my votes here.
And I'll be always impressed with Sao Paulo's monstrosity.

Wonder why Panama City is not in the poll list?
PC skyline is cool too !

Santiago is the best. Most harmonic and beautiful skyline in South America.

Buenos Aires looks like a mix of Santiago and São Paulo: Better quality than São Paulo, but less numbers, but inferior quality to Santiago, but bigger numbers.

Now, since BA is a city near the ocean it forms a good skyline view, São Paulo doesn't have a skyline because it does not have anything that cuts the immense amount of buildings that block the view of any skyline form (anything like a large lake or coast).

Sao Paulos size is monstruosity!(and kind of intimidating). Youll have to put Bogota, Lima and Santiago together to make up for Sao Paulos size.

PS: Btw, Buenos Aires skyline is awesome. Im not a big fan of the skyscrapers design in Puerto Madero but I have to admit the place is outstanding. (I still prefer the towers in Catalinas).

OMG so Bs. As. is drawing with a city that got only "3 +40 floors buildings". What a shame for Buenos aires.
