This is Dan from Vagabond Buddha. People hear all the time how cheap the cost of living is in some parts of the world. I have been traveling around the world for 11 years now. I have been to 64 countries so far in my life. I decided to collect data and give you examples of the cost of living as I travel.

I just finished 2 weeks living in a suburb of Lima called Barranco. I am traveling through South America presently.

Here are my estimated costs of living one month in Lima, Peru as a temporary visitor.

Some of the estimates could be reduced. For example, if you rented a furnished apartment by the month, it could be cheaper. Or, you could get a nicer place for the same amount of money. These expenses are based upon the Barranco area of Lima. You can rent a furnished 1 bedroom apartment in Barranco ranging from s/1000 to s/2400 per month depending on how nice and how close to the ocean or central Barranco you want to be.

For more information about how the above “Cost of Living Monthly Multiplier” works, please visit the bottom of this page at Vagabond Buddha. The above table does not include alcohol, excursions, or extras, and it is for one person. These costs are based upon eating outside your accommodations twice a day. If you stay in the Airbnb apartment, you might be able to save money cooking more. But that depends on what you cook and whether you would otherwise eat in Food Carts, Neighborhood Restaurants, or High-end restaurants. Some of the expenses remain unchanged when you add another person. I am not guaranteeing anything. These are just my notes from my personal travel.
