Lately I’ve been seeing a few blogs and forums talking about this, and yesterday I got a comment asking about it, so this weekend, ya’ll get to hear about…
Our cost of living in Cancun!
Jorge and I probably live more expensively than most people here my age, but much, much cheaper than others. (We spend more than most people here make.)
Also keep in mind that Cancun, as a tourist destination, tends to be more expensive than other cities in Mexico.
Our Monthly Expenses (Pesos/approx US dollar amount)
Rent (3 bedroom , 2 bathroom house with small yard): $4500/$360
Water bill: $50/$4
Sky (satellite TV): $280/$23
Cell phones: $300/$24
Groceries: $800/$64 (varies)
Expenses (taxis and buses to work/school, lunch every day for both, outings with friends, takeout): $7200/$576 ($1800/$144 a week)
Extras (dog grooming, gas tank refill for the stove, special outings, etc): $500/$40
Total: $13,180 pesos / $1,054 US Dollars
Kinda scary to see it all laid out like that!
Not nearly as inexpensive as Leslie Limon! Lucky.
How does yours compare?
