Prices in Mexican cities

Prices in the capital and big cities are much higher as compared with other parts of the country. That is to be expected though.

Prices in Mexico

One of main forms of public transport is route taxi, with a fare of 5-50 pesos (depending on distance).

Renting a rather decent car will cost 500 pesos per day.

Taxi ride within the city costs 100 – 120 pesos. The fare is better to be agreed beforehand.

Drinking from the tap is not recommended! The water is of bad quality and there is extremely high risk of contracting infectious diseases.

Food prices are almost the same around the country. You can easily find all the necessary things in big cities as there are more stores there.

Monthly rent for quite a good house will start from 2,000 pesos. In big cities you may rent an excellent house for 10,000 – 15,000 pesos per month, and it will be regarded as the most expensive one by Mexican standards.

A decent hotel room in a big city will cost you 180 pesos per day.
