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?

Good. Seasonal allergies are present. - May 2020


The air quality is good minus the occasional trash fire or outdated emissions setup on buses etc. - Nov 2017


Good air quality. - Nov 2015


I would say moderate to good depending on where you are at. My allergies did bother me quite a bit year round so bring your Claritin or Allegra! - Nov 2014


Generally good. Sometimes you smell sulfur by the beaches, and it's dusty on occasion. Overall, though, it is not bad. - Jun 2013


Very good along the coast and some dust on windy days in the city. - Feb 2012


Good. - Oct 2011


Good in the northern suburbs. A bit polluted downtown, but never a real problem. - Jul 2010


Moderate. It can be quite dusty with all the construction going on. Plus the winds from the Sahara in the summer bring the finest sandy dust you can imagine. - May 2010
