I am looking to retire in Puebla and would like to find out about a small one person apartment and expense. It does not have to be luxurious just simple

The internet thing is difficult. Aside from maybe Guadalajara or DF 60mbps is fiber optic to the home and is just a dream. 10mbps DSL is all you get if your really lucky. Our town only gets 1.5mbps on a good day. TelMex price for 10mbps and telephone is $381 pesos.
