Cost of living.

I have been wanting to live in a spanish speaking country for a while now. I was wondering if anyone could offer me some advice on where to live for a year and also how much it would cost to live there in American Dollars. I was thinking Buenos Aires, but that might be more than I can afford. Spain might be too expensive also, but if anyone thinks differently please let me know. I would like to go to spain for a year to study flamenco guitar. That would be really cool.

Re: Cost of living.

that's about 1500 USD per month. hmmmm. Are there any other places that would be cheaper? South America or Central America maybe?

Re: Cost of living.

South & Central America would probably be cheaper, it's not the same standard of living though. In Méxcio, depending on where you wanted to stay you could easily rent a house and live great for $500/month.

Re: Cost of living.

Hi Eric

I recommend you my country for studying Spanish. It´s a lot cheaper than Spain and really beatiful (Mexico is one of the most visited places in the world).
Hollywood´s movies depicts my country as dangerous and poor, but, believe me, that´s not true. There are several cities where you can live and study Spanish. I would recommend you Puebla, Queretaro, Guanajuato, San Luis Potosi.

Let me know if I can help you more.

Re: Cost of living.

There are plenty of places in Spain where to live with less than 1500 USD/month, but those guitar lessons aren't cheap
