A Mexican peso coin from 1982.

I loved John Scherber’s book, San Miguel de Allende: A Place in the Heart (more on that in the retirement chapter of the upcoming 14th edition of The People’s Guide to Mexico). If you are considering retiring in Mexico, I highly recommend that you read his blog post: Living in Mexico: Some Differences in Costs, where Scherber gives specific figures on cost of living in San Miguel de Allende. Hell, even if you are not considering retiring to Mexico, this post might change your mind!
