House with a patio, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingThe house that I rent is small, but it has two floors. It has two bedrooms and one bathroom, a kitchen, dining area, living area, backyard, and front yard. My cost to rent this house is 3,300 pesos ($175) a month. The neighborhood that we’re in is called Palmar de Aramara and it is located right behind Walmart and Sam’s Club so we’re in a nice location. Lots of expats also live in our neighborhood but they would have bigger houses.
 
The houses where expats mostly live would cost around $400 to $500 a month. Some expats even pay up to $2,000. Some have their own condos. But in general, if you want to rent a home in Puerto Vallarta, you won’t spend more than $2,000 a month for a very big house with a pool, with two or three floors, three or four rooms, a kitchen, etc.
 
With a budget of $500, you could get a nice house with two or three rooms and the house would be located in a nice place with security and it will be furnished. Everything is very affordable. For $1,000, you could get a house in Marina Vallarta, which is a very fancy neighborhood. Marina Vallarta has big houses, small houses, and even studios.
 
I have a friend who rents a big house in Marina Vallarta. It has two rooms upstairs, two full bathrooms, and one half bathroom downstairs, a kitchen, living area, dining area, a big backyard, a big front yard, and a pool and he pays 20,000 pesos ($1,100) a month. That’s not a lot of money for a huge house that’s good for four people. If you want a house for only two people, I’m sure you could get something in that area for $700 a month.

 Condo with shared pool for rent in Lo De Marcos, Mexico – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingThe cost to rent a home in Puerto Vallarta would depend on the exact amenities the client is looking for.  I can give an example of a nice 2 bedroom, 2 bath condominium located in Old Town Puerto Vallarta in the center of the action with A/C for $7,000 pesos a month, which at today’s exchange rate is just over 400 USD per month.
 
Another example would be a 3 bedroom, 2 bath condo in a gated secure complex with a pool in Bucerias, which would rent for $15,000 pesos per month, or about $890.00 US per month.
 
Prices are much lower here than north of the border, but there is a lot of variation in price depending on the part of town, number of bedrooms and desired amenities so my advice is to first fine tune the town or part of town you want to be in and then fine tune your search for the ideal new home.
