Berlin seems more appealing. But for the climate I'm going to have to go with Santiago.

It's really only if you want to give a huge weight to climate that Santiago would top Montreal as a place to live.


Weighting all other metrics Montreal and Berlin are fairly equal, and Santiago is some distance behind.


(BTW, I do like Santiago.)

Not the only thing. If beaches and nature is really important to you, Santiago is the best choice to live too

My verdict:

To live Santiago->Berlin->Montreal

To visit Berlin->Montreal->Santiago

Surprisingly this has been a very close poll from the start, a nice 6-6-5 voting split at the present moment. Not bad, there's parity here.

I'm not big into City-Data polls at all but this is one of the rare few ones that has been interesting to say the least, the way it has played out. Not bad at all.

I'm surprised so many posts saying Santiago is the best to live of the three, being much poorer, underdeveloped and unequal than the other two, especially Montreal.

Santiago metro area is quite developed, its HDI is about the same level as Spain. If you are middle class in Santiago you can have a very nice life.

If you are middle class (or better still, upper class), you can have a very nice life in most places in the world, including a majority of developing countries.

It sucks to be lower class in developing Latin countries, but middle class is not bad at all. There is a reason as to why most Hispanic immigrants in the US come from impoverished parts of Mexico and Central America, as opposed to cities like Guadalajara or D.F. or Monterrey. I dont think Ive met a single person from those three cities here

Best looking women.....that would be Montreal.
