I reckon it's even better than many asian cities' skylines!
Congratulations, Mexico City!
Congratulations, Panama City!
Congratulations, Santiago de Chile!

I truly believe all of these cool skyscrapers (ok, a few not so nice, I gotta say...) is great for all of us!
Ok, competition and discussion will always be around. However, what's the point of be here criticizing each others development?
We sould all just go to a bar, drink a beer and enjoy our amazing Latino America Latina!

Cheers!

Well, still I prove my point, is a tourist city, and if you live in America you don't have to cross the ocean to visit Sao Paulo, I think is a nice city, very cosmopolitan, and probably much more cheaper than many europeans cities, perhaps it doesn´t have so much different nations restaurants like you said, but it has 55 and that's a good bunch of nations, is better than what many other latin countries have to offer, it has many museums, and shows like operas, symphonies, theater, etc, I probably would visit it, and not for business, but that's my opinion, and there's one thing called business tourism, were you go to do business and at the time travel and see all the things the city has to offer, and that is tourism also, so there´s no way to say Sao Paulo is not a tourist city.

I recomend you panameños just to enjoy your growth not tring to look better, cuz you are not.
you are wrong my firend, the latinamerica capital city is México city, is the bigest of the world and the most important city in America after NY

Indeed, it is nothing special to be too populous, since megacities are a result of bad urban planning and development!

That's the point. The "old" megacities could achieve some quality of life, the never ones (in the deveoping countries) couldn't get high living stadards until today and won't get it in the future. Pollution, crime, violence, traffice (jams), long ways, everything overcrowded,...

the news of mexico city says that mexico city is sprawling really fast getting closer to other mexican big cities and current population is 24 million 2nd largest city also there's alot of construction going on in reforma and santa fe area and the outskirts they are building suburban style houses which i live in 2 story suburban style house in santa fe.
look at wikipedia for mexico city it says that is the capital city of latin america which it has the largest economy and very high markets.and it is the 8 wealthiest city but in 2010 it will get 7th surpassing kobe,japan. its the wealthist city in latin america.

Panama feels like a small provincial city.

No matter how many house of cards they build.

The real capital if there ever was one is Sao Paulo.

Gotham in the tropics.

Sao Paulo has more museums than you realise, it's FULL of GREAT Museus btw.

I met many Europeans in Sao Paulo and they loved every little thing about Sao Paulo, including its diverse museums. You are so smart that you make points based on what you read on city guides. That's hilarious.

People from Sao Paulo don't care if you like it or not, you don't exist for them. You are talking to yourself when you make your nonsense comments about the city.

I can't wait to return and eat some real food.

I agree with you again. Big is messy. More populous, more poverty.

First of all you don't know how Panama feels like because you don't live here, and as you said big is not always good, being small has many advantages, including more probability for the people living there to have a higher quality of life, and that's something that Panama is achieveing fast, because it has less population for the wealth to be distributed. And besides there´s a lot of cities that call themselves capitals of Latin America, and that´s just a way to describe a city with large commerce, and with many investments, not for how big they are.

8th biggest GDP doesn't mean eighth wealthiest, since per capita you continue faaaaar behind First World cities.
