    I feel like traveling all throughout Latin America, every country has something nice to offer even if its high in poverty or in crime
    My sister has traveled to many countries in Latin America, with her group of friends, of course, I wouldn't let her travel alone cause it is too dangerous for females (unfortunately). She has been encouraging me to also travel around L.A instead of Europe

    Latin America’s top 10 tech hubs ranking

    Based on the rankings of tech hubs published by StartupBlink in 2019, it appears as though 16 Latin American countries have landed in the global ranking.

    Upon careful analysis, there were some interesting developments. For example, Chile replaced Mexico as the regional leader in the tech world. At the same time, countries saw increased entrepreneurial activity in urban centers outside of the capital, which was also ranked.

    To celebrate Latin America’s entrepreneurial growth, the following market map presents the top 10 nations (as well as their most robust cities) seeking to lead the region in technology and entrepreneurship.




    1. Chile
    Ranked 30th global
    The so-called “Chillecon Valley” placed first as Latin America’s most active tech hub. Moreover, the Chilean capital of Santiago ranked 59th in the global ranking of cities followed by Viña del Mar (351st) and Valparaiso (457th).

    Chile’s position in first place isn’t surprising based on the success of accelerators such as Startup Chile. Some outstanding startups in the country include The Not Company and Ticketbis.



    2. Mexico
    Ranked 32nd global
    Mexico boasts three cities in the top 100 important tech cities in the world. These include Mexico City (47th), Monterrey (81st) and Guadalajara (90th).

    Despite having a estimate of 58 venture capital firms, though, Mexico descended from 30th to 32nd place, paving the way for Chile to take top honors. Grow Mobility and Clip are two of Mexico’s most successful startups.



    3. Colombia
    Ranked 34th global
    Colombia impressively climbed 13 positions in the global ranking to land in 34th place worldwide and third in Latin America. Although there continues to be areas for improvement, Colombia has much to offer.

    For example, Colombia is the birthplace of the famous delivery platform Rappi and home of at least13 venture capital firms.



    4. Brazil
    Ranked 37th global
    Brazil rose from 39th to 37th place this year. All the more, the cities of Sao Paulo (23rd), Rio de Janeiro (64th) and Belo Horizonte (70th) are the country’s major urban hubs.

    Not only does Brazil showcase three cities in the top 100 cities worldwide, but also the most unicorns in Latin America and 30 impressive venture capital groups. At the same time, Brazil’s Nubank is redefining the alternative banking industry.



    5. Argentina
    Ranked 44th global
    Argentina heavily depends on its capital city as a hub since Buenos Aires (48th) ranked the highest. Other cities lagged behind in the global index, such as Cordoba (256th) and Mendoza (427th).

    The disparities above may explain why Argentina declined from the 40th to 44th position this year. There’s still potential for the country based on its 19 venture capital firms, not to mention its cryptocurrency initiatives.



    6. Peru
    Ranked 57th global
    Even though Peru descended a position in the ranking, it has a great entrepreneurial talent such as Crehana, Mi Media Manzana and Laboratoria. Additionally, there are seven venture capital firms in the Andean country.

    However, the centralization of Lima (68th) as the sole urban hub becomes a double-edged sword for a country with a population of almost 32 million. Startup Peru will hopefully change this since they have toured the nation in search of new talent.



    7. Puerto Rico
    Ranked 70th global
    While Puerto Rico shrunk seven places in ranking this past year, it ranked 70th globally and seventh in Latin America. Most of the tech activity took place in the capital city of San Juan (340th).

    At the same time, this island deserves recognition as one of the top 100 tech hubs in the world. Top Puerto Rican startup performers include antivirus marketplace Polyswarm and the private messaging medical platform, BrainHi.




    8. Uruguay
    Ranked 71st global
    After the Argentine and Brazilian economies stabilized and benefited tech entrepreneurs, Uruguay unexpectedly fell behind 12 positions compared to last year.

    This will most likely change considering the country just premiered Latin America’s first 5G network. Uruguay has also launched successful companies such as the delivery app PedidosYa, productivity tool Kezmo, and payment platform dlocal.




    9. Ecuador
    Ranked 77th global
    Ecuador placed on the global top 100 tech hubs at 77th, putting it in ninth place in Latin America. In terms of cities, the capital of Quito (183rd) is the country’s only urban tech center. Meanwhile, one of Ecuador’s most successful startups is YaEstá.




    10. Dominican Republic
    Ranked 79th global
    This year, this Caribbean nation reached the 79th position in the global ranking. Seeing the major jump that the capital city of Santo Domingo (288th) performed, this country is one of the fastest growing economies in the Caribbean.

    Mexico’s 2nd-longest bridge opens to traffic in Campeche


    Puente de la Unidad in Campeche, the second longest in Mexico and the fifth in Latin America, was inaugurated Monday by federal and state authorities.

    “It is a strategic work that causes a significant qualitative change, not only for the benefit of the state, but thousands of travelers who travel to the Yucatan Peninsula,” said Javier Jiménez Espriú, secretary of communications and transportation.

    The 1.5-billion-peso project is just the beginning for Campeche’s infrastructure. Jiménez Espriú, on behalf of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, said that 460 million pesos will be allocated to Campeche for toll-free roads, feeders and rural roads, and another for modernization and road construction.

    He stressed that Campeche is at the center of another federal priority, the Mayan Train, which he said will boost the economic, tourist and cultural development of the region.

    Connecting Isla Aguada with Isla del Carmen, the Unity Bridge is 3.2 kilometers / nearly 2 miles long, a crown width of 14 meters / 50 feet and reaches 17 meters / 55.8 feet in height. As many as 5,000 vehicles could cross the bride daily.
