According to a ranking that covers the "Study on Quality of Life 2011" prepared by the consulting firm Mercer, the city of San Juan, Puerto Rico's capital, is entered which offer better quality of life.
Among the considerations that the study takes into account when making the grade are the level and quality of infrastructure, good healthcare and a wide variety of leisure.
Among the cities of Central and South America have found better positioning Pointe a Pitre in Guadeloupe, in a respectable position 63, followed by San Juan de Puerto Rico (72), Montevideo, Uruguay (77), Buenos Aires, Argentina (81), Santiago de Chile (90) and Panama City (93).
A greater distance are the cities of Monterrey in Mexico in the office (104), San Jose, Costa Rica (105), Asuncion, Paraguay (112), Lima, Peru (118), Mexico City (121), Quito Ecuador (124), Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic (129), Bogotá, Colombia (130), Guatemala (142), La Paz, Bolivia (147), Caracas, Venezuela (164), Managua, Nicaragua (166), San Salvador (168) and, already in the queue positions, Havana (189).
Instead the top of the list refer mostly to European cities like Vienna, at No. (1), Zurich (2), Munich (4), Dusseldorf (5), Frankfurt (7), Geneva (8 ) and Bern and Copenhagen share the position number (9), then followed by Amsterdam (12), Hambiurgo (16), Berlin (17), Luxembourg (19), Stockholm (20) t Brussels (22).

Dis an update today on December's calendar!Edited: 6:47 pm, November 30, 2011
San Juan is one of the unsafest cities not only in Latin America but in the world today, With over 1,040 homicides this year it makes Puerto Rico one of the unsafest countries in the planet with 30 homicides per 100,000. much higher than Mexico (the president of Mexico wrote in his twitter this information too, that his country is safer than Puerto Rico per square mile) , arm robberies are at an all time high too, one of my close friends was a victim of one of these in broad daylight, near a popular restaurant in Condado.
Who believes in this report? not me, quality of life in Puerto Rico is crumbling when you can not be safe in the streets.
While some see their cup half full, others see their cup half empty...
I'm glad my cup is more than HALF FULL !
Check this out. The information was collected from expert experienced travelers who in fact visited multiple cities around the world. In Puerto Rico some jibaros have no clue about the outside, and these travelers or expert, in general had knowledge about these countries better than us, so how can you compare San Juan with Djibuti, Erritea, or Addis Abbaba in Thetiopia if a jibaro never left the country? Can a jibaro answer that question? I'm sure that there is a margin of errors, but believe me, some would prefer to move to San Juan.
boricua-one and others, thanks for sharing your knowledge and resources- I appreciate the free information I've obtained and invaluable insight as well! I can't wait to see many of my students' homeland--- they are proud and excited to share with me! Keep on giving us updates- please! (However, I am looking forward to tasting the coquito as well!) dec. 22 very soon!
