Mexico cost of living

Many people enquire on the cost of living in Mexico. Here is what we find ….

Our family moved to Playa del Carmen from Canada and we currently live for a little more than half of what it would cost us to live in Canada. We have friends who are retired and live here on much less than we do as we have two teenagers still in school and we pay for their schooling every month.

My husband, Shawn, constantly hears clients complain about the high property taxes they have to pay where they live. Our property taxes are less than 200 USD per year and I don’t know anyone here that pays even 500 dollars taxes per year. We also find that most food costs less and eating out is less expensive.

Remember that all this is even with the fact that we live in a very popular beach town. With inland Mexico the costs will be even less. As I have mentioned before, Merida, another beautiful city only about 4 hours away, costs even less to live in.

Yet another reason to appreciate Mexico.

Enjoy the Adventure! Suzanne
