Yo vivo en la ciudad de Guayaquil y sobrevivo con menos de lo que dicen en esta lista. Fijense en esto:

Desayuno $2
Almuerzo $3
Merienda $2
Arriendo (renta) $100 mensual por un cuarto con cocina y baño en el suburbio, no en el centro
Papel higienico: $1
Pasta dental: $1
Shampoo(head&shoulder) $6
Desodorante: $4
Cepillo de dientes: $1
Jabon de lavar ropa:$1
Paseo/Cine $20
Paseo/Cine $30 con pareja
Gas para cocinar $3
Gastos inesperados: $50
Ahora, digo yo, sumen esto $224.00
Mensual yo sobrevivo y hasta con menos. No tengo trabajo, mi familia y amigos me estan ayudando con esto y me iba a relocalizar pero ya no, porque pienso de que es economico vivir aqui en mi querido Guayaquil, aunque eh iodo de que en Cuenca tambien es economico y por su clima es mas compatible con Norte Americanos.

Dear Sirs;
What a great page! The sole place where I could find the information regarding the cost of living of several cities and also comparisons between any two cities. This eliminated a lot of hassle going from page to page.
Unfortunately, I cannot provide any information with regard to Caracas or any other city in Venezuela. As an inhabitant in this country, those data are usually unimportant. It takes a tourist visiting here to furnish you with the appropriate information.
Besides, in the chaotic situation that has been recently created here (in political and economical terms), prices vary every two weeks or so, as the cost of the US currency goes wildly up.
Thanks a lot for your invaluable help at this time when I am deciding to leave my country for good before it´s too late.
