What Caribbean beach town is Mystery City #17? (Luis Gomez Photos)

Welcome to Week #17 of Luis’ collection of cities from South America, Europe, Australia and North America.

Last Week: Mexico City

Last week’s Mystery City was Mexico City and the street scene is near the city’s Torre Latinoamericana. The 45-story “Latin-American Tower” was built in 1956 and is one of Mexico City’s most famous landmarks.

How did readers do guessing the identity of #16? In addition to Mexico City (24% of voters), the choices were Santiago (top choice with 29%), Lima (24%), São Paulo (18%) and Caracas (6%).

We will reveal the identity of #17 next Wednesday. As you can tell from the choices, it is a Caribbean beach town and not a large one at that. It is in one of five countries located in the southern and western ends of the sea. Be prepared to do some online research to figure out the identity of this week’s city.

Previous mystery cities have been Caracas, Valaparaiso (Chile), Sydney, Bratislava, La Paz and Santiago, Long Beach, Toronto, St. Louis, Valencia (Venezuela), Genoa, Colonia Tovar (Venezuela), Prague, Viña del Mar (Chile), Asbury Park (New Jersey) and Mexico City.
