We stumbled across it back in the late-90s. We even got a tour, and got to check out some of the new builds. We loosely considered buying. I can't imagine what a house there sells for these days.

Only in america would they call themselves the capital of latin america without being in it. Imagine if they did the same for other countries and NYC named itself as the capital of italy or something?

Nice to get one last ignorant gripe about the US before closing out the year. Americans did not coin that nickname. Latin Americans did, and for good reason. Here's an article by noted champion of US jingoism the BBC documenting why Latin Americans feel this way: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-36281648. Moreover, "Latin America" is not a real place, but a cultural concept created to contemplate loose cultural connections between people living in different places. Cuba, Argentina, and Honduras are very, very different places, and many US citizens of Hispanic descent consider themselves Latin American, so yeah, the US and Miami can be part of it. If you seriously think Italy and Latin America are comparable concepts, you're the one who needs to exercise a little humility. If you've been to Miami, you'd know it is defined by its rich Latino culture.

I think this quiz needs to be yellow-box based. Otherwise people can just name cities in Florida without using the hints
