Are their cities in Mexico or areas that are know for being cleaner then others? Better air, least trash, best sewage treatment? Most sanitary?

I have read about some beach towns where sewage makes its way into the ocean (and have smelled this myself). And I do see piles of trash in some cities randomly on the street, and air/smells can be bad some places. Just curious if their are places that are know for being very clean.

Yes, Ajijic is very clean and tidy. I especially liked the residential areas because of that. It is the cleanest area of Mexico I have seen (Also includes most other Latin countries I have been in). I personally don't like the dead lake and the altitude makes it too cold for us.

I saw reading sewage in Hutalco does not make it into the ocean (where it has known to in Puerto Vallarta, Zihua and probably many other coastal cities).

I've heard Baja Sur has clean air.

I definitely agree with Ajijic. Household trash is picked up on a daily basis- DAILY. Once on the sanitation truck refuse bags are torn open and the contents sorted to plastic, aluminium, paper, garbage: it's amazing to watch. I haven't seen street sweepers but residents do what most Mexicans do: keep after your own w/o others having to do it. Love that.

The lake is getting better and will continue to. I don't have to swim in it or eat the fish, I can just stare at it all day long and enjoy its changing colors and reflections.

Many gringos who keep sequestered in gated communities or LCS. Those "out and about" are friendly and happy souls.

The weather is ideal and the night rains clean the air. Just stay clear of the main east/west drag and all the traffic (fumes). Everyone tries to assist when needed.

Here are some links I've turned up on the cleaner and more polluted beaches.

Seems like there have been some issues with raw sewage being dumped into the sea on the past in Acapulco, Puerto Vallarta, Veracruz, Sayulita.

I would think Mexico is getting better with deceasing the pollution levels of its rivers, lakes and oceans as it becomes more of a developed nation.

Any large resort town on the beach in Mexico likely has environmental issues and dealing with the infrastructure with treating wastewater and trash.

Thanks Rodrigo1974. I had read that Huatalco does not dump raw sewage into the water. And had head that Baja Sur has less pollution.
