***Mexico City was constructed by spanish in XVI century over the great Mexico-Tenochtitlan City founded in XIII and XIV centuries by Aztecs. Other people live near; the Azcapotzalcas, Xochimilcas, Axoscos... Mexico City now is over a big plain surrounded by mountains and hills. This city has been the capital of this country by centuries, it grows with history...***
***You can expect a rough city like LA, NY, Rio de Janeiro, Delhi, Hong Kong... So, be prepared. Also you must consider that to cross the city of end to end takes around two-three hours, transportation is safe and abundant, sometimes is slow, is not easy to be on time, take your cautions. Subway is cheap (around two dollar cents), efficient, not so extense like Paris or NY but extense at all. You can find almost all the necessary medicines but some of'em could be expensive, take care of it (aspirines, pepto bismol, flanax; some of'em are popular and cheap) Better if 'u contact some MEMBERS OF CLUB to visit and walk around, some media around the world say this place is like a war zone, its not true (very very far true), but this is a big city with 20 million people. Night life is concentrated in few points, out of'em city sleeps and transport is difficult at nights (over 22 or 24-1 am to 6 am). Some visitors are affected by the contamination of the air, bring some eye-drops. Smoker Regulations are practically invisible, but people can´t smoke on subway and buses, restaurants have non smoker's area. Peculiar FACT: Even New Yorkers surprise the number of cars here, a damn LOT!!!***

Los Roques, Morrocoy (quedan relativamente cerca). En Caracas se puede ir a la casa de Bolivar, su tumba, El Avila, centros comerciales, teatros boulevares..
Brasilia, the political capital of Brazil, may look weird at first time, but its a wonderful place to live. Its architechture is unique. You can see most of the tourist sights in one or two days. There are dozens of parks, waterfalls and historic cities in the Region. I specially recomend Chapada dos Veadeiros National Park. Nightlife in Brasilia is not cheap but is less expensive than in São Paulo. My hometown Santos has the biggest harbor in Latin America and therefore has some lousy beaches. Nevertheless, it is less than 200km from the best spots in São Paulo's coast. It is less than 100km from São Paulo, Brasil's financial and industrial center. Downtown Santos is full of historic buildings, most of them from the golden age of coffee. The city is also home of Santos Futebol Clube, where I have two special seats. The best of the nightlife consists mainly of crowded pubs with live music.
centro historico, museo de antropologia e historia, muchos mas museos vivo en la ciudad mas grande del mundo
beaches, rain forest, jungle, mountains...
