Drive Up Prices? May 17
Can Rich People Who Travel and Retire in Mexico Drive Up Prices?
Travelers sometimes wonder if they are driving up prices with their extra money. As a concientious traveler you don’t need to be concerned about this. Unless you are in a “made-for-tourists” area, such as the ones set up for cruise ship passengers, it is actually the richÂ Mexicans who set prices.
If you are making an effort to eat and shop in areas frequented by other Mexicans and to ‘buy locally,’ the money you spend will be in balance with money spent by locals and Mexican tourists.
