#Ferdinando on Aug 14, 2015 :
My entry on a mid range restaurant is based on my recent visit to VIP's a Mexican chain restaurant for lunch no discount offered.
However, food prices in Mexico city tend to vary on which part of the city you are at.
For example, sometimes 4 (four) tacos and a soda at a food truck or improvised restaurant, no decor nor upscale neighborhood could be as expensive as eating in one of these chain restaurants.
I left many spaces blank as I don't drink alcohol and I live at my own place.
US dollar has gone up dramatically in the last three months thus making imported goods quite more expensive, for example 890 grams of US Choice rib eye steaks at Costco - cost cutting club, very popular in North America- can go as much as 700.00 MXN
Opposite to European goods; I was able to buy 250 grams of German brand Davidoff rich aroma coffee for 40.00MXN when the average half a kilo of mexican grown coffee can go as high as 90.00 MXN
Spain's liver pathe for 25.00MXN versus 45.00MXN to the low quality produced in Mexico.
I would be more than glad to help you keeping up to date on the prices that I know of.
I'm a 50 year old single, professional man living on my own so I tend to eat out most of the time.
#Anonymous on Jul 22, 2015 :
Let´s not forget that Mexico is quite an inequal country and that 33.2% (37.6 million) of the population live with less than $5.00 a day, this is the main reason why there is so much confusion with the average salary.
In such inequal countries, basing our judgement on average figures is just unreliable.
#sheri mcgugan on Mar 18, 2015 :
I wanted to know how much could I rent a home in mexico city for by the month. at least 4 bedrooms, 2 baths
#Anonymous on Dec 01, 2014 :
Alberto H is right, average monthly salary in Mexico City is at MX$366.53/day which makes it around US$655 or MX$9163/month for 25 days of work. I'm leaving an article of El Universal about it, the source they used was the Mexican Social Security Institute and the date was jan 2014
#ruby on Sep 18, 2014 :
I'm trying to move over to study for acting in the Mexico City, San Angel by January 2015. Does anyine know of any affordable room or studio renting available...?
Please please help.
#alberto h on Aug 28, 2014 :
Salary might be accurate as an average, because there are many rich people here, but for the most people its inaccurate, id say it 600-700dll/month its more accurate for most people here.
#Anonymous on Apr 23, 2014 :
There is a big Gap in between. For example. If I made 100 dollars a month and my neighbor made 5000 , the average would be about 2500. So the ridiculously rich reallt throw it all off. I would say that the salary is not accurate. My opinion though.
#Silvânia on Apr 10, 2014 :
I'd like to know about cosmetics prices...
#Anonymous on Jan 06, 2014 :
$12,000 as the "average" is quite inflated. This is not taking into account the almost %60 percente of the population that has to work in the informal economy, most of which make less than $200 MX/day.
#Anonymous on Nov 07, 2013 :
^^ keep in mind it is the average salary, some people make more and some make less.
#Anonymous on Sep 20, 2013 :
Average salary seems low. My cousins live in Mexico and all earn about double stated slary.
