Which climate is better for you?

Arica, Chile- a very unique but boring climate. Mild, comfortable temperatures year round but the unique thing is that they can literally go years without seeing a single drop of drizzle form the sky and decades without seeing a rain shower. Temperatures stay between 50 and 80 year round. All time record low is 41 and all time record high is 91. "Cold snaps" and "heat waves" don't exist. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arica#Climate

Miami, Florida- a tropical monsoon climate on the fridge of the border between subtropical and tropical. Hot, humid, rainy summers with daily thunderstorms with brief torrential downpours (often followed and preceeded by clear skies) and 1 or 2 hurricanes a year. Relatively dry (still some rain each month though) comfortably warm winters with occasional cold snaps dropping temperatures from their average daytime highs in the 70s down into the 50s for a few days each year. Maybe hitting 40 about night once a year with a subfreezing temperature being a once in a lifetime occurrence. Climate of Miami - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

If you're not a fan of either, please vote for the lesser of the two evils....

Arica has great temperatures and good sunshine, unlike the too sunny and too warm Miami. Arica wins by a landslide even though it has no precipitation.

Miami no contest. More rain (especially thunderstorms), warmer, sunnier, better beaches. I'd sacrifice a few cold snaps for warmer weather in general year-round.

Balmy but unchallenging - certainly not "wretched" in my book. The trip up the valley towards the Bolivian border has some nice vistas.
