Quality of Life, Cost of Living & Medical Care in Mérida

When it comes to relocating to a completely new place, it’s completely understandable to have some doubts. Mérida is a great place, but if you need a little more convincing, then this page might just help you make up your mind.

Great Quality of Life for Less

We can’t tell you just how much it’ll cost you to live in Mexico – it all depends on your spending habits and lifestyle choices – but we can guarantee that living in Mérida will significantly cost you less than living in, say, the US. Here are some reasons why:

  • Basic food commodities such as fruits, vegetables, and other grocery items cost less.
  • Thanks to legal reforms that were introduced in 2014, prices for telephone services have become less expensive than ever.
  • The international oil market does not dictate the gasoline and diesel prices in Mexico as they are set by the Mexican government. Residents are also able to buy gasoline for considerably less in local gasoline stations.
  • Unless you use electricity beyond a certain level, electricity costs are mostly manageable. There are, however, government subsidies offered to help you keep your electric costs at a minimum.

If you really want to spend less, then learn how to assimilate and immerse yourself in local customs and culture. A fun, affordable lifestyle in a colonial setting with great living conditions as well as a myriad of entertainment opportunities make Mérida a great place to live.
