so the best name should be "The Best South American Capital Skyline"
I like Santiago, Buenos Aires, Bogota, and Caracas in that order

Buenos Aires and Santiago by far and soon Lima!. Some new buildings are under construction now, but we'll have to wait until 2010. They are not going to be very tall, but they'll have interesting designs.
Sorry if there's any mistake on my writing

So the title is wrong, cause it says "Best South American Skyline", it doesnt say anything about capitals...

I dont know why you dont put Sao Paulo. Its the best skyline by far in all Latin America. Just check this link and talk latter.

www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=642866

Second for shure is Buenos Aires, with any doubt.
