In almost every forum around the world, country leaders are discussing the necessity of creating smart cities. However, even the term ``smart city'' is diffuse nowadays. Some countries want their cities to become smarter and others want to create smart cities from scratch. Several mappings have been developed around the world to locate the smartest cities. We believe that, since Latin American and Caribbean countries are exploring in the creation of smart cities, a proper mapping and plan is necessary to assure that the efforts in creating smart cities are not a waste. Using a literature review and a survey, we try to determine the state of smart cities development and its technical readiness in the Region.
