Cost of Living in San Miguel De Allende, Mexico

I am thinking of moving to San Miguel and would like to know the cost of living there. I would like to rent a small house within walking distance of the center. It seems to me however that we Americans have driven up prices to such an extent that it may be just as expensive to live there than here in West Palm Beach, Florida.

I am thinking of San Miguel or surrounding area, but have you looked at the real estate listings. Real estate agencies are highway robbers anyway but the prices just for a simple 2 bdrm rental seems like New York city. I live in a small town now in a 5 bdrm 2 bath 2 story house spiral staircase laundry for $300.00 US a month and that is 2 times 2 high. doesn't look good. I am not interested in central, historic, gated just a simple clean area close to big stores and some other americans

From all I have read about San Miguel, I gather because of the wealthier expats moving there it is more expensive than a lot of places in Mexico. It seems to be a very desirable place to be.

There are other cities in Mexico than SMA and Chapala that can offer a colonial experience with lower rents. Of course if you need a large English speaking ex-pat community, you'll have to pay for it.

I live in Queretaro, not so far from San Miguel---I have heard that prices are higher in San Miguel but also in Queretaro in the past few months we have been hit hard with inflation.  The government says it is just temporary--let's hope they're right.
