Miami will always been known as the "Latin American" mecca when it comes to the international Latin Community in the US. LA would be second. NYC, Houston, Dallas, Chicago also have large populations of Hispanics who would be more educated and/or Americanized. Unlike the other cities, Miami and LA also look very similar in terms of architecture to the major Latin American cities.
This is true indeed.
