Cost of Living in Mexico

Cost of Living in MexicoEveryone seems to agree: the quality of your life improves in Mexico. Things take longer…so you’ll need to learn to slow down. Goods and services cost less…so you can afford the kinds of luxuries only the very wealthy enjoy up north—like a maid, a cook, and a gardener. And in Mexico you have the good fortune of giving up very little when you make your move. You’re heading to a near neighbor where you can get Internet, cable TV, and all the other comforts you’re used to…

Here’s a sample monthly budget for two people:

Housing (rental of a two-bedroom home) $900
Utilities (electricity, gas, water, phone, cableTV, Internet) $200
Groceries $400
Entertainment (dining out and other activities) $250
Household help:
  • Maid: Three times a week
$190
  • Gardener: Once a week
$100
Incidentals $150
Monthly total $2,190

 

Everyone’s lifestyle requirements are different. You could live on less. It’s possible to rent a place for $500 a month (or even less). If you don’t need a cable TV or Internet, you can save on those expenses.
