Anyone dare disagree ? (lol)

I agree, however, it is also still a very Mexican place. From your description it sounds like it is just an American enclave. I like that it is mixed, the best of two worlds. I wouldn't want to move to Mexico to live in a place where only expats lived.

I am looking to buy a condo and eventually retire down there.

Mexico bashers usually don't know anything about the country anyways.

Tough call, it's a toss up between NYC and Osaka for me.

But I gotta go with NYC.

Interlaken, Switzerland.
Big cities are ok to visit, but to live... I think not.

Well, we are of a same mind here! maybe I'll retire (or at least snowbird) down there , but I won't buy real estate - I won't have the means anyway with my future SS pension!

Sydney australia. Excitement and culture of NYC, weather similar to LA but beaches that are much nicer, cleaner, warmer. Loved living there 6 months

London has that magical mix of jet set sophistication and excitement that other places can only imitate.

Good question, but Honolulu quite easily.
It's like the Gold Coast here on steroids.
