Cost of Living in Mexico

We have just released our fully revised and updated Guide to the Cost of Living in Mexico. The guide enables you to assemble an informed estimate of what your annual living costs in Mexico are likely to be and build a personalized budget tailored to your individual circumstances.

This guide explains, in detail, the prices and costs for a wide range of products and services that most expatriates and those visiting Mexico for extended periods will seek to purchase when living here. It also includes a number of overlooked costs which people often forget to include in their budgets, sometimes with significant consequences when the actual costs are compared with prior estimates.

A key feature of the guide is the detailed price table featuring over 100 items commonly purchased at supermarkets and pharmacies. This detailed table of food, groceries and pharmaceuticals enables you to make direct comparisons of prices in Mexico for grocery goods and everyday items you buy.

The guide also features a summary of the typical costs across a selection of other essential items, including accommodation, utilities, transport, fuel, and communications. There are wide variations on these costs depending on your lifestyle choices, where you choose to live in Mexico, and how you go about acquiring these things. The guide also examines which areas in Mexico are more and less expensive to live in.

The Guide to the Cost of Living in Mexico also includes historical prices, as well as additional analysis taken from the pricing data we gathered last year and this year.
