Re: Cost of living in Peru

I bought a house on the ocean in San Bartolo. My guard is $80 dollars a month and he lived in servant's quarters. My maids are about $80-90 a month. I can eat at my club and drink most of the day for less than 10 dollars all day. My cost of living is usually less than 600 dollars a month.
