    One of the most well known cities, few will be surprised by what they see and experience. Very high cost of living can make it tough for many nomads. A lot of things to see and do but most of that costs money. Can feel overwhelming and oppressively business oriented (ie, full of very serious yuppies and places catering to them), especially in Manhattan south of Harlem. Ton of single people, which is good on paper but means everyone you date will get distracted by another person, or multiple, unless you are extremely exceptional, before you have a chance to meet again, never ends. Weather sucks hard from July to August and January to March/April. It's an okay city if you're a biker and varies a lot. Some areas are quite protected, others have no bike lanes. In general, it can be dangerous if you want to commute by bike, it's not Amsterdam. Friendliness of the people varies a lot. I think income/wealth, where they grew up, where they live within NYC, their job, etc. can often give you an idea of what to expect. Service at stores is usually pretty unhelpful and unfriendly but, again, it varies, even within the same store. Internet is fast for the most part. Great selection of food, just a bit pricey besides some of the cheaper pizza slices. Transportation system is good, no need for a car. However, the subway lines are notorious for having issues during rush hour and are usually jam packed. Also, the stations look decrepit and are way out of date. It's pretty safe. Street scams are more prevalent in tourist areas, pick-pocketing and random phone snatching isn't really anything most people worry about. Can be very noisy depending on where you live. You may wake up to extremely loud construction every morning.

    I spent a couple months here and loved it. I studied spanish in a school called Peruwayna in the heart of Miraflores. The school was great and this was a great way to meet people. I went to a couple hostels to meet up with some friends, and met a lot of really cool people that way. Loki is a really cool place in Miraflores to hang out and stay if you're doing the hostel thing, and like to drink. I had a very nice private airbnb in miraflores for less than $30 a day. I also stayed in Barranco for $32 a day in a very elegant condo with 2 beds and 2 baths which was about a half mile away from the action. Virtually everyone I met was kind and welcoming and really liked that I spoke the language. Barranco is a really beautiful place to watch the sunset, and the nightlife is really cool. Uber is cheap and reliable. I avoided regular cabs because I didn't want to negotiate and end up with a gringo price. If you're going to the airport, get a private taxi. I say this because I almost missed my flight home after two Ubers showed up and rejected me once they found out I wanted to go the airport. Luckily, the third was agreeable. You'll want to know at least some basic spanish to get around. If you have a conversational level or are in the process of learning, you'll get a lot more out of the experience because not many people speak english. The food is delicious and unlike the food anywhere else, though most of the local cuisine is a bit heavy and unhealthy. You can easily eat for half the price of major American city, and probably a third of that if we're talking NY,LA, or San fran. Ask about menus. Those are lunch specials for $3-4 that include 3 courses and a drink. They're usually really good too. The happy hours are usually 2 for 1, meaning 2 drinks for the price of 1, which is better than most US happy hours. Especially considering the original drink you're buying is a lot cheaper in the first place. Don't buy souvenirs in miraflores! You can get that stuff much much cheaper in the centro de Lima just don't linger there after dark, because it gets very sketchy. I never had any security problems or felt unsafe. I also live in Baltimore, one of the most dangerous cities in the US, and I felt much safer in Lima. I know women need to be much more carful, because there is an epidemic of sexual assault in Lima, especially on public transit. The visiting women that I met never complained to me about any problems, but I have heard quite a few stories from local women about being groped and/or catcalled. I was warned many times to be careful with my cellphone in public. If you're talking on your cell in public, at least be aware of your surroundings because there are many people who specialize in grabbing your cell from your hand quickly and running off. Though technically illegal, weed is easy to find and cheap, and you can pretty much smoke in the street without worrying about cops bothering you, if that's your thing.

    I visited Poblado for about a week. I had absolutely no problems with the Internet while I was there. Maybe it was because I was in Poblado, but I never experienced slowness or anything of the sort. Pros of Medellin: spring-like weather, inexpensive, reliable Internet, plenty of shopping and creature comforts, cosmopolitan, friendly people. For cons, a big one is air pollution. Medellin is located in a higher altitude valley. There are many old cars, buses, and (especially) motorcycles belching exhaust into the air. It's difficult for pollutants to disperse because of the city's geography. I.e., there's plenty of smog and there's no debate regarding the negative health impact. To Medellin's credit, the city acknowledges the problem, monitors pollution, issues advisories, and is trying to change, but obviously change doesnt happen overnight. Other cons: The more Spanish you know, the better (not really a con, just is), gringo price gouging, some safety issues (use extra common sense).

    Amazing, amazing, amazing. I initially arrived there for 2 weeks with an intention for it to be just a transit stop, but stayed there for 3 months. Stay in the right areas (Condesa, Roma, Coyoca, Polanco, Coyocan, etc), take Uber and take basic precautions. It's a lovely town with endless food options and work options. Accomodations are not cheap by Mexican standards, but very affordable comparing to USA. It's just a great place to live, in my opinion. The only thing that is bad is quality of the air (not everywhere, though, but in general). If you are sensible to a bad air - take a trip and see how you adjust to it. It's a big issue, yes, but I feel like the are much more pros than cons. Viva Mexico!

Accomodations are not cheap by Mexican standards, but very affordable comparing to USA. It's just a great place to live, in my opinion. The only thing that is bad is quality of the air (not everywhere, though, but in general). If you are sensible to a bad air - take a trip and see how you adjust to it. It's a big issue, yes, but I feel like the are much more pros than cons. Viva Mexico!
