Vancouver is a young city full of student life. In its streets, you will see young people of different nationalities with backpacks and folders, charming cafes, hand-made shops, medicinal marijuana dispensaries, and Asian-influenced restaurants.

In the Downtown area, you will find shops and shopping streets such as Granville Street, Robson Street, Burrard Street, or Alberni Street (where the most luxurious stores are located). You will also find restaurants, shopping centers, convention centers, the majestic Stanley Park and its seawall, more than 8Km long.

The average temperature in summer is between 7 and 14ºC, although there are summer days that can reach up to 35Cº. From October to March it usually rains a lot (about 165 days a year) and there is a humidity of 70% on average.
