#3 Atlixco, Mexico
Located in the shadow of Popocatepetl, infamous amongst the most dangerous volcanoes in the world, this little town is just over 2 miles north of Mexico City. Don’t worry about the road journey getting there – you’ll have Maheco for company. This quaint, charming little town, with its semi-tropical gardens, colonial architecture and warmer-than-fresh-buns residents, makes this place with a climate you ought to experience before reaching the purgatory.
Located at an elevation of 6,000 feet, Atlixco is “renowned for its benign climate, which varies by only a few degrees Celsius year-round,” according to Wikipedia, meaning the low- to mid-80s Fahrenheit. If that doesn’t sound like a place warranting a visit – you probably love Cheetos and root beer, and are this beyond the purview of our attention, bother and/or this article.
#2 Faulconbridge, Australia
Located just about 90 minutes outside Sydney, Faulconbridge is a little town in Australia, sitting a good 1,463 feet above sea level, with mild temperatures and evenly distributed humidity and rainfalls.
Referred to as “the world’s most equitable climate” by the World Meteorological Organization (a fact that cannot be verified at this moment), Faulconbridge has more going in its favor, than against one calming weekend in the outskirts of Australia.
#1 Lake Chalupa and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Mexico has a lot of awesome stuff – places, people, drugs, 80′s arms & ammunitions, and for those idealistic climate fantasies – Lake Chapupa and Cabo San Lucas in Mexico is the place to be.
