$1,000 to $1,500??? What ever

$1,000 to $1,500??? What ever happened to Living Like A Nica for $600.00 a month??? HEHEHEHE I guess that there is a very big range on cost of living in Nicaragua.

Take a real Nica, school teacher married to a day worker. She makes $140.00 a month and he $90.00 = total of $230.00. They have two kids, no rent (living with family) no internet, he owns a moto and she walks 14 Klm (there and back) to work every day. They do not eat out, entertainment is watching the people walking down the street and the drunks make fools of themselves or watching T.V. They live an ok life style.

Then the Ex-Pat who tried to live like a Nica. Young couple, no kids, have internet to check their blogs on a hourly basis, ride the bus everywhere, eat out every once in a while (do not want to make it seem like they are better than the locals). Invite Nica friends over to eat 3 to 5 times a week to make sure the locals see them as equals. Their cost of living is $600.00 to $900.00 a month.

Then you have the retired couple who are not going to scrimp on anything (hay, they worked hard for their money and want to enjoy life) They eat out all the time, have a maid, cook and an errand boy for the odd job and tasks. They travel around Nicaragua with a Nica guide to translate for them. They spend $1,500.00 to $2,000.00 a month.

Now if you add a business to the mix, well all this goes down the tubes. It will all depend on the ability for the Ex-pat to run it and also depends on the type of business they are in.

Bottom line you are looking at $230.00 to $2,000.00 a month.
