What is the air quality like at post (good/moderate/bad)? Are there seasonal air quality issues? Does the air quality have an impact on health?

Air quality is pretty good. It can get pretty dusty in the dry summer months, but I haven't heard of anyone having major issues because of it. - Nov 5, 2017
Decent air quality. If it was bad, we didn't notice any health issues. They do burn a lot of trash sometimes, so that has an impact. - May 31, 2015
The air quality seems find although it is very dusty here - Mar 25, 2015
Overall, not bad. Allergies can be killer though as everything grows in this climate. Air quality at the border can be awful on long-wait days. - Apr 30, 2014
Good but rush hour city center traffic can decrease air quality. - Feb 15, 2014
Pollution never was a major problem, though it varies day to day. - Apr 4, 2011
It's moderate. The excessive dust can be a pain, especially if you have asthma. - Mar 5, 2011
It is Mexico, i.e. there is usually a nice gray cloud layer that hangs over the city, and no, we are not taking rain clouds. Then again, with the ocean breeze, there is some air flow. - Dec 29, 2010
Moderate, it seems healthy but dust is everywhere. - Aug 11, 2010
