San Jose(Costa Rica) it has the best health care and best school and is a member of the U.N. human rights council and it has a low crime rate.
The World Bank estimates that the life expectancy at birth for Costa Ricans at 2008 is 79 years, a figure unchanged since 2005.[62] The Nicoya Peninsula is considered one of the Blue Zones in the world, where people commonly live active lives past the age of 100 years.

Costa Rica has been cited in various journals as Central America's great health success story Its healthcare system is ranked higher than that of the United States, despite having a fraction of its GDP.[66] Prior to 1940, government hospitals and charities provided most health care delivery. But since the 1941 creation of the Social Security Administration (Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social - CCSS), Costa Rica has provided universal health care to its wage earning residents, with coverage extended to dependants over time.
The literacy rate in Costa Rica is 94.9%,[77] one of the highest in the world. Elementary and high schools are found throughout the country in practically every community. Universal public education is guaranteed in the constitution. Primary education is obligatory, and both preschool and high school are free.

I live in Rio because it is easy to make a living but I prefer Montevideo or Porto Alegre.

I chose 'other', because I'd live in Montevideo, Uruguay, most out of all the big Latin American cities.
San Jose would be my second pick.

It depends what I was going for. Curitiba, Brazil would be the easiest for me since I have family there and it is pretty "Western" for a Latin American country.

If I was going purely for myself, Lima. I know a lot of people hate it, and it's not the nicest city on the list by any means, but there was just something about it that I loved. I could easily live there and be happy.
