I visited Amsterdam twice, in July 1997 and Summer 1998. I felt very good in this city and was very active. I stayed both times in a small old hotel with big windows, overlooking what I recall being called the “Skinny Bridge.”
From Tink Netherlands - All Score: 3 Climate: wet, windy, cold, summers keep getting hotter the last years. temp. about the 90's Environment: Dutch houses moslty have all central heating, natural gas is used throughout the country for cooking and heating. Healthcare: Some knowledge about CFS/FMS but not much treatment available. Over the counter meds no widely available like in the US.

A report from 2004:
I felt so much better in the Yucatan! I was there in April for 2 weeks. In Cancun I felt just okay, just like when I am in Puerto Vallarta.
Over the whole period of time I had problems sleeping, but that could have related to some other things too (I just tapered off Clonazepam).
I noticed a significant improvement when we arrived (after 3 days) in Merida. I felt energized and no pain in the muscles. Merida is a nice city, and you are right it has narrow sidewalks, and there tend to be a lot of people on the shopping streets. Neverteless there are many places where you can sit down outside (there is a nice parc in the center), and enjoy yourself (where it is quiet but not too quiet).
But I would say that Campeche was the place for me which is South West of Merida. My brainfog improved, and felt much more energized than in Merida. I visited the Uxmal Maya site which was stunning.
In the Netherlands we do live under the sea level near the ocean, and that was not a good place for me to live. Merida and Campeche in the Yucatan (Mexico) were so much better!
I do get better in summer as well. Pain is almost gone, and much more energy plus the fact that I recuperate a lot easier.
