Cities on the Pan-American Highway Map

I'm so confused, why isn't Santiago on the route?

Your comment makes sense. I've read several maps and it seems the Pan-Am Highway follows the Route 5 in western Chile, so it crosses Santiago.

Just to be clear: finding the real route is very difficult beacause it has been conceived 100 years ago and some roads may have changed. Moreover, a lot of secondary roads have been included to the original route, so it's hard to keep track :)

I think Phoenix should be included because a portion of the Black Canyon freeway is included on the route..even Wikipedia affirms this.
