There's no such thing as 'the MOST developed city' (whatever the region) :nuts:...

Santiago has indeed good standards of living, but it is more or less the same that you can find in Buenos Aires or Montevideo. And either way the most developed cities in latinamerica are probably medium to small sized towns in the the southern cone, not the big ones...

Well, I've been in Buenos Aires and does not compare with Santiago. Buenos Aires has many decadent regions, you do not see in Santiago.

Buenos Aires only have Puerto Madero that is the most developed part of the city, Santiago is nearly half the city that this way. Seemed to be in Australia. And, unfortunately, nowhere region in Buenos Aires made me feel in another place, sometimes in the historical centre seems like Europe, only that.

In terms of kilometers, how far is this area from the old downtown? Can you take a subway from the old downtown to Las Condes?

When I went to Santiago, I did not see it.

It is one of the most developed cities in Latin America, but not the most. The most developed is either México City or Buenos Aires. I could show you the mos affluent areas of México City and it will as good, or a lot better than Santiago. It all depends what sections of the city you portray on your pictures, I could show only Santa Fé and Reforma District and it will look like any modern areas in Los Angeles, New York or any large city in the Unites States.

This area does not look to developed, and it is the same in México and Argentina. Some parts are developed and others not

totally agree with you. Its impossible compare Santiago with Mexico city...

think about it... if Mexico city was good, would not have a lot of mexicans in U.S. The most part of the immigrants of the world come from poor areas and is not opposite

Mexico City is good. It has many beautiful areas. Also, it's one of the oldest cities in the world. When the Europeans arrived 500 years ago, it was far bigger than any city in Europe.

Everyone who travels to Santiago says the city is incredibly organized for the development standards of latin america.


Say the city is clean, has no slums, and that crime rates are low.


On the other hand, Mexico City , São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Bogotá, Lima and Caracas are typical and disorganized third world cities, with beautiful areas in one part of town and many other horrific and decadent, slums and violence.


Is very difficult for some latin american forumers to assume that here in SSC. This generates much jealous.

On the other hand, some people say that Santiago is a boring town, very conservative, with many remnants of military dictatorship and that freedom expression is not seen as well like in other regional cities and is often reprimanded by the police and government.

I think what is happening is that Santiago has a less disparities of wealth compared to other latin american cities...yes Mexico City, Bogota, Caracas, B.A etc.. they haver their well develop areas which really are part of first world countries, but at the same time they share a incredibly disproportionate rate between poor and rich, and I think Santiago is by far the city with with less wealth discrimination.
Either way every city has its own charm and the bad apples :D
