The ones I have NOT been to but WANT to visit:

1. Buenos Aires
2. Rio De Janeiro

The ones I have been to which are nice/interesting:

1. Guadalajara, Mexico.....El Centro historico for colonial architecture and Jose Clemente Orozco murals. The Zona Rosa for nightlife and beautiful women. Also, a great city to hear live music including Mariachi music as Guadalajara is the CENTER for this type of music.

2. Playa Del Carmen, Mexco. Beautiful beach town near Cancun.

The OP said Latin America not South America. Latin America is not a continent at all it is everything from Mexico south except for Belize, Guyana and Suriname. So it cant be a continent since Central America and Mexico are part of North America.

Anyway's I thought of putting Miami also, it is not geographically part of Latin America but it sure is in every other way possible. But minus Miami:
Buenos Aires! Great city, cheap great food nice people I loved everything about that city.

People keep saying Santiago...Santiago what?

There are alot of Santiagos in Latin America.

My vote goes to Santo Domingo.

The smoggiest Santiago of them all, in Chile. If you're really lucky, you may be able to see the Andes Mountains through the smog, some days.

Upon leaving the Airport there, I was able to see the smog layer, and the white capped mountains looming up above the smog. Really beautiful, though.

I prefer Rancagua, a medium-sized city south of there.
