I've never been, but my little sisters in-laws are from there. She went with him last christmas and from what I understand there's a HUGE quality of life gap between the classes there. Your profile says you're from California, so no doubt you'll be in the wealthy class....and I assume do well for yourself down there. She did say it was beautiful, so you should enjoy that.
I moved from Cali 2 years ago and miss the climate, so hoepfully you don't hate it down there for the heat and humidity.
Maybe this is a waste of a post, but if nothing else...GOOD LUCK TO YOU!!
