USD to MXN peso current exchange rate 19.04 pesos to $1 USD and it'll get higher, music to my ears.

# PRISCILA the majority of people who post numbers here have never lived here as I do.$850 to $1,500 per month efficiency apartment good area,$600 to $750usd bad area.One bedroom apartment $1,600 to $4,000 good area,$900 to $1,500 USD bad area.Numbeo is depending upon contributors for accurate costs but few people give any.The only thing that's cheap in Mexico City is buying fruits and vegetables at open markets.
#Anonymous on Mar 20, 2019 :
The rent costs are waaaaaay higher than 3 or 4 thousand pesos! A nice furnished 2 bedroom in Coyoacán is about 20.000 mxn! I was comparing Mexico to Thailand... The numbers are just wrong! Crowd source data depends on the person... Very subjective
#Priscila on Jan 20, 2019 :
This is really far away from reality and it seems for me that is not updated
#Данат Нұрмағамбет on Jan 17, 2019 :
Kazakhstan is cheaper but poorer anyway. I guess we have similar quality of life.
##anon on Apr 03, 2018 :
pretty good prices, in Israel its like 2 to 4 times the cost in almost all the categories.
I guess the salary in mexico city are much lower then, so does anyone know what a programmer what be the average salary?
#Héctor Martínez on Oct 05, 2017 :
Public mexican education is free. Most of Mexicans study in public schools, therefore, if you incluye the cost of prívate education in your Cost of Living estimate, your figures are wrong.
#Anonymous on Sep 19, 2016 :
