Living costs in Mexico

The living costs in Mexico will depend significantly to your lifestyle. Grocery goods like food are notably cheaper in Mexico than in the US, Canada and Europe. When it comes to luxury goods such as electricity, cars, air conditioning and telephones, these costs can accelerate significantly.

Piped water is cheap, but you have to take care because sometimes it isn’t drinkable. Therefore many Mexican citizens purchase bottled water, commonly in 20 liter bottles. Compared to the USA, Canada and Europe the water is expensive.

Rental costs may also be higher than in equivalent US or European cities. This mostly occurs when a place is popular expat and tourist place or close to the US border. As a general rule, the rental costs close to the US border are quite high. In non-popular areas you will also find a lot of quality accommodations for less money.
