San Agustin, Mexico For $220/mo
Here is another email from my good friend, Lorna, who is living the good life in San Agustin, Mexico.
It’s inspiring, insightful, and full of many hopes and dreams realized. It could be your dream, too.
I just wanted to say thanks for the info you provide, it’s so helpful and practical!
I am not much for writing e-mails, but I wanted to tell you that I have been living in San Agustin for the last two years and I love it!
The weather is perfect, the rent is amazingly low for my 3 bed, 2 bath casita ($2200 pesos (Barbie – approxmately $220 American dollars) a month, includes water and a great gardener)!
I pay aprox. $175 every 2 months for electricity, gas is aprox and I pay 300 pesos every 3 months, for phone, cable & internet. Combined is only 450 peso a month!
I live on a small pension plus I teach English at a local San Agustin school. I am the only “gringa” living in my coto, and my neighbors have taken me in with warm hospitality.
Guadalajara is a wonderful, diverse, cosmopolitan city with so much to see and do! San Agustin is only a 2 1/2 hour drive (on the Colima road) to the beaches in Manzanillo… 3 1/2 to the beaches in Nayarit… 4 hour s to Puerto Vallarta.
What more could I ask for? Life is good!
Thanks again for your newsletter, keep up the good work!
