The cost of a one bedroom apartment is around $400 USD per month, and the cost of a two bedroom apartment is around $600 USD per month.

What do I need to know about living in Tijuana?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Tijuana, they said:

"Before retiring in Tijuana, expats should become familiar with the laws and regulations of the country. They should also make sure they have a valid Visa in order to stay in the country. Expats should also research the cost of living in the region to make sure their budget is sufficient for the lifestyle they desire. Additionally, it is important to research medical services in the area to make sure there is access to quality care for any health needs. It is also essential to familiarize oneself with the local culture to make sure the transition to living in Mexico is smoother," remarked one expat living in Tijuana, Mexico.

"Make language acquistion a high priority--but not over taking care of you family's needs! If you know nothing about Mexican culture, working with a Mexican professional language tutor can really help you learn the culture at the same time. Be prepared that adjusting to a foreign environment can be very difficult--usually more so for spouses (typically SAHM) and takes up to 3 years to begin to feel a part of the community," wrote one member in Tijuana.
