And why is that? You don't like history, nature, and food?

And we wonder where these "closed minded American" stereotypes come from...

My fa cities in Americas:

Large
Mexico City and New York City. Give me a month in either and I'll find something new to see/do every single day of it.

Medium
Iquitos, Peru. This place has such different vibe than most of Peru, plus easy access to Amazon river.

Small
Jardín, Colombia. When living in Medellín we took a ton of two-nighter side trips to pueblos nearby, this was by far our favorite.

Jardin is nice and the drive up to it is nice. Should note that it's pretty touristy, nice to visit and look at but not really typical of a regular town.
