The apartment price I mentioned above are for long term leases, and it works if you invest time to try to find an apartment at a good deal (a dentists offered me a 2 bed appartment in a good place of the city for 400,000, about $110 US per month, so it's also a matter of luck). If you are a gringo, you'll save money finding an appartment if you speak Spanish and can negociate prices. If you are a foreigner from a developed country, they might try to charge you more. If you find a local friend, it will be much, much easier to find good deals. The people there is usually kind (but there is a small minority of very bad people). Just dress humble and keep a low profile.

You may find a 2-bed appartment for 600,000 a month. However, you should take into account that this is a very hot place and using air conditioning is expensive (when they got a/c, they will be only available only in the bedrooms). The electricity is very expensive too. Local restaurants sell menus which are simple local cousine for less that $2.50, a bargain, but they are opened during lunch time only. Regular restaurants are open all the time, though, but they are just about the same price as in the United States (or a little bit cheaper).
