Latin America is a region rich in culture, history, and natural beauty. However, it is also home to cities that, despite their importance and attractions, have not managed to captivate all visitors, so we have asked ChatGPT what are the five ugliest cities in the region.
“This selection it is based on factors such as urban planning, infrastructure, maintenance and overall visual impact”, explains the platform powered by artificial intelligence (AI). Next, we present the controversial ranking.
In the first place on our list, we find Guatemala City. Despite being the capital of the country, this city faces multiple challenges in terms of urban planning and architectural design. Traffic chaos, neglected construction, and lack of green spaces make Guatemala City unappealing at first glance.
After the devastating earthquake of 2010, the capital of Haiti, Port-au-Prince or Port-au-Prince, was left in virtual ruins. Reconstruction has been slow and challenging, leaving the city with a messy appearance and poor infrastructure. However, despite the challenges, Port-au-Prince remains a vibrant and lively place, with a rich culture and a resilient population.
Known as a major commercial center, Ciudad del Este in Paraguay is considered one of the ugliest cities in Latin America. The proliferation of informal constructions, chaotic traffic and the lack of urban planning make its streets unattractive to visitors.
Caracas has suffered a notable deterioration in recent years. The lack of maintenance in the buildings, the increase in insecurity and the presence of garbage in the streets contribute to an unpleasant image. Although the city has parks and natural areas, a lack of investment and attention to urban infrastructure has tarnished its potential beauty.
Ciudad Juárez, located on the northern border of Mexico, has received attention due to its uneven development and challenges in terms of urban aesthetics. The rapid economic and industrial expansion in the city has left its mark on its urban landscape, presenting an ugly appearance to some.
