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:
Rents are higher in the village of ajijic. We pay $800 a month for 2 bedroom house plus $45 for maintenance.
Russ Rousseau on Jan 16, 2020:
The index looks very accurate. Gasoline is 20.1 pesos/l. Domestic help varies slightly but for a maid is 50 to 60 pesos/hr and gardener is 80 to 90/hr.

Number of bathrooms in the three bedrooms quoted above please

cost of daily maid service
David on Apr 19, 2019:
For the most part, When it comes to prices, Ajijic is not as low as most (not all) places in Mexico. Wages for a maid/gardener, on an hourly basis is usually more than the daily minimum wage set by the government. The prices are high because the Gringos/Gringas will pay them.

Still, it's, IMO, much better than NOB/
Julia Schneider on Jul 03, 2018:
Pemex verde gasoline is now at $19.09 per liter. I would add at least 10% to most of the prices listed. Rents have gone up even more.
