Like 4 cents a month...it's a muthafuckin HELLHOLE
If you are budget concious you need only about 500 USD but if you are extravagant you need more than that.
More than that...more than the other answerers mentioned. $1000 as of today is only 46, 000 pesos. All things considered..rent, running AC, Cable etc...$1000 would be bare minimum, not much left for entertainment etc. $1200...would be ok..$1500..you live great...have a maid/cook...go out now and then....
like 1,500 a day?
Less than it would cost to live in California that's for sure.
