NYC has very large population from Guyana. There are a few almost entirely Guyanese enclaves. Liberty Ave. in Brooklyn-Queens is a Guyanese mecca.

Most of the other countries you listed have decent representation in NYC and Miami. But obviously Chile and Argentina were immigration destinations until recently, and Uruguay and Paraguay immigrated to these wealthier next-door states. Totally anecdotal, but my coffee guy is Uruguayan.
