this thread should be called "best south-american CAPITAL skyline"...
its not fair choosing brasilia for brazil, its like choosing washington for USA!
brasilia is not even the 5th best in brasil...

my vote goes to buenos aires obviously...

this pool is kind of biased....
...or the title should be corrected to "best CAPITAL city skyline"

Where are Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo ?

In the poll options, I prefer Caracas.

But, sorry, Rio de Janeiro's downtown skyline is the best, just take a look:

In second place is São Paulo, We don't need too much to explain how great and huge is!

I voted for Buenos Aires. Santiago skyline is the only one that can compete with the BA one in my opinion.

But I voted for BA coz Santiago skyline is modern and it is nice, but I think that BA is massive... and u can see that in the skyline. Santiago is smaller but still nice.

What about that skyscraper Costanera in Santiago? I heard that it got cancelled. is that true?

c yaa

I absolute agree with your list, because of quality of life, services, urban roads, skyline (however, Montevideo not yet), universities, etc.

Skylines:

1. Sao Paulo
2. Buenos Aires
3. Santiago
4. Caracas
5. Bogotá
6. Lima
