Also I want to state that this is just Spanish speaking Latin America, no Brazil, Guyana, Suriname, Belize, Haiti, or Quebec.

Though other cities are catching up (such as Guadalajara), I would say for Mexico, Monterrey is the nicest looking from the ones I've seen. I kind've want to also put in Queretaro City and parts of Mexico City in there too.

For Colombia, I've heard it's Medellin and Bogota. I heard that Chilean cities are waay up there.

Bogota has parts that are as nice and clean as San Francisco and parts that are third world. The roads and public transit are definitely not organized though.

I think a big thing of Bogota (and many parts of Colombia) that keep it from looking advanced is the amount of red brick buildings that you see. So much of Colombia looks gloomy because of this.

However, you're right. Colombia is pretty nice, and in the main cities the roads are actually not too bad. The problem is when you're going between cities.

I would have to agree. Even though I haven't been to Colombia, I've seen my pretty large share of pictures of Medellin and Bogota on the Internet and on Google Earth. Most of the buildings are pretty boring and only have red brick like you said. Also I saw just colors of buildings that are just limited to white, grey, brown, yellowish tan....I thought that Latin cultures liked bright, saturated colors...Nothing like Mexico.

In Mexico you would have houses that have bright, vibrant and saturated colors and have pretty much all of the colors of the color spectrum.

Yeah, even if you've never been there the pictures are pretty much what it looks like. Many parts of Colombia have a very "gritty" feel about them. That for me was also kind of a little charm of the place though. Hard to explain.
