Income is down and expenses are up (again) this month.

I’m kind of ashamed that our eating out bill is nearly as much as our rent 😳 We’ve received so many recommendations for good food spots, eating out has been a huge part of our entertainment in Puerto Vallarta, thus the large bill. We’ve mixed it up with some higher-end restaurants as well as local taco stands and they’ve given us a great experience.

Other than the food we’ve also done three x full-day trips – The Botanic Garden, San Sebastian del Oeste, and El Tuito, Mayto & Tehuamixtle. We attended a cooking class where we made six salsas and we and did two taco tours.

  • Accomodation $493.71
  • Food (Groceries) $166.90 
  • Transport $114.49
  • Entertainment $613.96
  • Laundry $22.44
  • Dentist $121.18
  • Shopping $56.24
  • Eating Out (includes drinks) $467.97 

Total expenses $2,056.90
Total income $4,512.43

Overall we lived a champagne life on a beer budget this morning and wouldn’t have it any other way. I’d like to say next month we’ll be laying low and sticking to our $1,500 budget but we’ve already got a two-day trip planned to our next city Guanajuato which is likely going to push us over.

Hasta luego amigos
