#Silvia on May 17, 2019 :
Even if San Miguel is more expensive then it used to be, for us this is still worthwhile. We think of relocating from Santa Fe , NM this year. Perhaps people compare prices with an average american town, but here in Santa Fe housing is outrageously expensive. And going our for dinner and spend $23.00 for two people is pretty much impossible.
#Charlie on Jan 05, 2019 :
Times are changing, but our house of 5 years is 100% off the grid and our property taxes ($100) are quite low compared to the US ($5,000). We have found excellent restaurants at reasonable prices as low as tacos for 9 pesos. Produce at the local market is aways lower than the big chain stores. Medicine and medical services is also much more affordable. All of my prescription meds in US are over the counter in San Miguel. San Miguel is evolving into an expensive resort city being voted best place in the world to live 3 times in the last 5 years. But, if you do your homework you can live well on much less than most places in the US. Especially with the peso 18 to 1.
#Mark Krause on Nov 24, 2018 :
San Miguel is quite expensive. Expect to spend in excess of $200 USD per foot for anything within 15 minutes walk time of the center. Restaurant prices will run similar to mid-level United States cities (Dallas, Houston, Atlanta). San Miguel used to be inexpensive relative to the USA, but it is no longer.
