Despite dropping two places since the 2017 survey, Monterrey remains the Mexican city with the best quality of life, ranking 112 on a global scale. Meanwhile, Mexico City goes down one place and ranks 129 this year, according to the latest results of the Mercer's 2018 Quality of Living Ranking

This outcome was the natural result of other Latin American cities achieving higher scores, according to Melissa Mata Sardi, Mobility Leader of Mercer Latin America.

Montevideo (77) is the highest-ranking city in Latin America, followed by Buenos Aires (91) and Santiago (92), while Caracas (193) and Port-au-Prince (228) scored the lowest in the region.

“In Latin America, there are increasingly more differences in the levels of quality of life among the South American cities when compared to the rest of the region, which leads corporations to check and revise the value of their mobility proposals, as well as the benefits and compensations of their expat policies, in order to mitigate and compensate the variations which have a direct impact on the adaptability and assignation experience of both, executives and their families,” explained Melissa Mata.

Vienna tops the ranking for the 9th year in a row, according to Mercer, while Zurich comes in second, followed by Auckland and Munich in third.

The fifth place goes to Vancouver, the city with the best quality of life in North America.
