Cost of Living in Nazca Peru

Rate this post

This is Dan from Vagabond Buddha. Nazca, Peru is not a place in Peru I see many westerners retiring. It has a cheap cost of living for sure, but there are nicer places in Peru that are also cheap. Unless you have family here that you are returning to, or you are an archeologist coming to study the Nazca lines or the various burial grounds, I just don’t think there will be enough here to keep you excited.

Mostly foreigners come to Nazca while touring around Peru to fly over the Nazca lines, to see the Cantalloc Aqueducts built 1500 years ago and still functioning today, to see the Cahuachi ceremonial pyramids, or to see the 1500 year old Chauchilla burial grounds and recovered contents. My above “Things to Do in Nazca” link will tell you about those attractions.

Here are my estimated costs of living one month in the Nazca area of Peru as a temporary visitor. For all of the transportation modes listed, other than taxi, I have listed the collectivo price. If you buy anything using my links, you will pay nothing extra, but I will receive a small commission, which helps pay for our travels.

Some of the estimates could be reduced. For example, you can find unfurnished apartments in Nazca for as little as s/300 (95 USD) per month, for a local-style apartment and double or triple that for a nice place in Nazca. So, the prices I am quoting below are higher, and about what a temporary visitor will pay if they stay for a month or two.

The above costs do not include alcohol, excursions, or extras, and it is for one person. These 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 meals at home. 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.
