Alejandro: I'm a retired U S citizen and have lived in Santa Cruz for over 13 years now in a very nice central part of the city.A one bedroom unfurnished apartment 75m2 costs me $280 USD per month and another $45 USD for water, electric,and gas.My megar social security retirement pension is more than enough to sustain me and yet I still save $450 USD per month in my savings account, plus plenty of money left over each month on my debit card.You obviously hate Santa Cruz for some reasons.You said you're moving to Monterrey Mexico for the same prices as Santa Cruz.Your post makes no sense at all,and is totally inaccurate,period.
