Rio, Sao Paulo, and Port-au-Prince are not in Latin America. Brazil and Haiti do not speak Spanish. I'm confused as to why so many people as saying Bogota. Are you crazy?! Colombia is probably one of the most, if not the most dangerous country in the Western Hemisphere. They basically have no working government or police force. The country is run by drug cartels.

Anyways, I saw Panama City. When I went there it really felt like I was just in another part of Miami. Really enjoyed it.

I think the OP was just trying to say anything below USA. Is nit-picking really necessary?


Also, with bogotá, it is dangerous.. yes, but it is not like you describe. They still have a relatively non-corrupt police force who will help if needed. They are combating the war on drugs, not working with them. I'd choose Colombia over any city in Venezuela or Bolivia.

Haiti and Brazil are part of Latin America.

We're talking about Latin America, not about Hispanic America.

Haitians speak French, and French is a language derived from ancient Latin.

Brazilians speak Portuguese, and Portuguese is a language derived from ancient Latin too.

Havana
Santo Domingo
Sao Paulo
Lima
Quito
Cartagena
Rio de Janeiro
Salvador

I chose the above ones...been to most of them as well, and much preferred them.

Of the ones above, Brazil was my favorite place by far. Two that I didn't go on my above list were Cartagena and Havana, but being they seem so similar to the Brazilian flavor, I'm sure i'd love them as well.

I don't think there's many benefits to living in Cartagena besides the weather.

Cartagena is a very beautiful city. The most beautiful in Colombia, I think.

I would want to live in Cartagena's condos!

Just like a live in a condo here in Fortaleza! Once you're used to live in the heights, you always want to live in the heights!
