Is the cost of living in Manzanillo high?

We asked people how much they someone comfortably live on in Manzanillo, they wrote:

"The cost of living in Manzanillo is generally very affordable. Rents on apartments and houses are significantly lower than many other Mexican cities. Food and utilities in Manzanillo tend to be cheaper than in other areas of the country, with fresh fruit and vegetables available at local markets and produce stands. Eating out is also relatively inexpensive, with plenty of good quality restaurants serving up a variety of local and international forms of cuisine. The cost of transportation is also comparatively low, with excellent buses and taxis that can get you around the city for very little money," remarked one expat in Manzanillo.

"I think that is a very personal question. You CAN find rental houses for about 5000 pesos per month, plus power and water, telephone and satellite. Then it depends on wether you eat the local fruits and vegetables or want something imported. Beer and alchohol are very reasonably priced, walking on the beach is free. I expect that for about 1000.00 US a person could live here comfortably. For 2000.00 you can live VERY well," explained one expat living in Manzanillo.
