Fixed Expenses

Energy consumption is a major contributor to living expenses in Playa Del Carmen, with electricity costs ranging from 500 to 3000 pesos per month, depending on usage! A major tip we have to save on A/C usage – which is the main energy sapper – is to click the “dehumidifier” or “dry” setting, which is the button the looks like a water droplet. Small adjustments can lead to significant savings over time.

Navigating Playa Del Carmen is affordable in public transport, such as with “collectivos” which are the small van buses; however they don’t hold to a schedule or specific bus stops. So as far as comfort and accessibility, owning a car, scooter, or bicycle, according to your needs, is always best!

Healthcare costs are another crucial consideration for expats relocating to Playa Del Carmen. Incredibly, medical services are usually half of the price than they tend to be in the USA or Canada!

 

A similar story goes for groceries! Their affordability is one of the great perks of living in Playa Del Carmen. Enjoy savings of up to 30% on groceries compared to other countries, and indulge in delicious meals at local restaurants without breaking the bank.

 

Lavish Lifestyle?

You can also live your indulgent lifestyle here, which can certainly add to your expenses, but the experiences are often worth every penny. Subscribing to a premium gym and spa pass, enjoying activities like diving or a day out on a catamaran on Isla Mujeres are easily accesible and will truly enrich your experience of the Riviera Maya.
