This is pretty much for the warm lovers. Which country has the better overall climate offerings?

I pick Mexico. Australia seems to have a lack of warm oceanic climates similar to Tijuana or Ensenada (Perth is too hot in summer, for example) and has no subtropical highland climates like Mexico City, Puebla, Zacatecas, etc.

I pick Australia. I think it has more variety. Where in Mexico do you have a climate like Tasmania?

The main thing I like in Mexico are the large mountain ranges that Australia lacks. This changing elevation creates many differing climates within a short distance. In Australia it seems you mostly have to go a long way to get a change in climate.

I'd say Australia mainly because most of Mexico has a highly imbalanced precipitation pattern (very pronounced wet and dry seasons) which I generally dislike.

Tijuana is oceanic? How does that work?


Australia for me. Mexico lacks the snowy climates, although still has some great climates.

Its close but I say Australia.

Both have variety in different ways but Australia does have a wider variety of "north to south" climates. Also both have far superior climates to Canada.

I say Australia for the variety and the better tropical climates and better subtropical climates with distributed rain.

All of the tropical climates in Mexico are too hot in the summer or above 30c for too long. If it is good then it has low sunshine hours like Tampico or Morelia (google them).
