Does altitude is a really relevant issue? Guadalajara is quite above the sea, Mexico city had it twice with 2 FIFA WC finals there too...

But Bogota's is about 1000m higher! Even FIFA banned games there for awhile

Bogotá is higher but Guadalajara is up in the thousands too. And FIFA went back on that bad decision already. PASO will be very short on viable options if they choose to close the door on higher cities.

Well if there is another viable option like Santiago then off course Santiago should be given the nod. However if its two altitude cities what other choice does PASO have>

It has Chilean symbology but USA usually uses very similar iconography. Plus, it's only a bid logo, right? Santiago 2014 South American Games is way more lively than this one.

Yes, it's only a bid logo, but the bid logo of Toronto was much better than the current one.

In this link (in spanish), for example... It pretty much says that: "Puerto Rico is still in conversations with some cities such as San Juan, Ponce, Mayagüez and Caguas to become Puerto Rico's candidate city. And that the deadline is Junuary 30th"

However I'm not sure :S someone knows something more?

The other cities that have already formalized its bid to host the 2019 Pan American Games are: La Punta, in Argentina, Bogota, Colombia and Santiago de Chile. Meanwhile, Miami, United States and Lima, Peru, are the other two cities on the continent that have expressed interest in offering their space for this event, but have not submitted their projects due to the PASO.

Remarkably, the deadline for nominations expires on January 31, from which time it will develop a series of activities, such as exposure of the projects by each of the candidates, in the Extraordinary early PASO February in Jamaica and the promotion period of the finalists, running from May until the day of the announcement of the final selection of the host city for the games mentioned, it will be October 7 of this 2013, Toronto, Canada

Not for 2019 but affects the 2019 race:

Puerto Rico is launching a bid to host the 2023 Pan American Games, Gov. Alejandro García Padilla said Tuesday afternoon.

“Puerto Rico has decided to dream once again,” García Padilla said. “We are aiming high for future generations.”

The announcement at La Fortaleza came after a meeting between the governor and members of a commission created to study the viability of the island winning a bid for the 2019 Pan American Games. The decision to shoot for the 2023 event, instead of 2019, was based on island economic factors and the likelihood of the success of Puerto Rico’s pending petition.

“We’re not here to simply compete to host, we’re here to win the award,” the governor said.

García Padilla said the island government would invest less than $200 million into the effort, with the private sector pitching in roughly another $100 million.

The governor said his administration would work to improve the mass transit system, adding that a light rail system would be completed by 2023.

“This isn’t a cost, it is an investment,” said García Padilla, signaling that the Pan American Games would spur Puerto Rico’s economy.

Puerto Rico Olympic Committee President Sara Rosario said existing sports venues would be refurbished. A Villa Panamericana housing complex for athletic delegations would be built with private investment, she said.

San Juan hosted the 1979 Pan American Games, and many of the facilities built for the event have since been razed after falling into disrepair. Mayaguez and other western towns hosted the 2010 Central American & Caribbean Games. The island government’s tab for hosting those games ballooned to $440 million, well ahead of the $280 million investment initially projected.

The host city for an Pan American Games Games is usually chosen six years ahead of their celebration. The process of selection is carried out in two phases that span a two-year period.

The Pan-American Games were last held in Guadalajara, Mexico in 2011. The next edition will be held in Toronto in 2015.

Over 5,000 athletes from 40 nations compete at the Pan American Games in 36 different sports and nearly 400 events. The first, second, and third place finishers in each event receive gold, silver, and bronze medals, respectively.
