Video: The Cost of Living in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

San Miguel de Allende is one of Mexico’s prettiest colonial towns and an expat favorite. But it doesn’t have to be expensive. You can find properties there now starting at about $150,000, and enjoy San Miguel’s vibrant atmosphere and many amenities. And your cost of living in San Miguel will be low, too.

In San Miguel de Allende you can rent a two-bedroom apartment with one or two bathrooms for about $400 a week.

Day-to-day living expenses are about 30% to 40% less than you’d pay in a supermarket back home and fresh fruit and vegetables are a lot cheaper.

Make sure to visit the Tuesday market, where you can find anything from snacks to bicycle parts. Or shop for crafts at the Mercado de Artesanías or dozens of other shops that line the cobbled streets of San Miguel.

Eating out at a restaurant will cost you a few dollars for breakfast. And the menu of the day for  lunch costs about $10 to $15.

There are sound reasons to live in San Miguel de Allende—rich culture, friendly population, and a delightful climate, though it can get a bit chilly in winter. Quite simply, it is one of the loveliest small cities in Mexico.
