AB on Mar 22, 2024:
The median monthly rent for a San Diego County one-bedroom apartment was $2,330 in January 2024.

I have lived in Ajijic since November 2021 and the lowest rent I have paid was for a one bedroom casita $500 in La Floresta, $823 for a one bedroom casita in Vista Alegre, private community, and $700 for a 2 bedroom in downtown Ajijic. The change in the value of the USD to the MXN peso really increased the cost of housing in Mexico.

The average cost of a maid has gone up. It's about $80- 100 pesos per hour.

Ajijic, Jalisco, Mexico is a small town with approximately 10,000 residents. It is part of the municipality of Chapala. I think this is part of why you don’t have much info about Ajijic.

We don’t have any chain stores. We go to Guadalajara for clothes, shoes, cosmetics, etc

Virtually every residence is distinct unless you are in a gated community. This makes it almost impossible to estimate the average cost of housing.

Rents in Ajijic for a one bedroom average about $800 US. Lower rents can be found in the nearby city of Chapala
Susan McCrary on Jul 13, 2020:
