Re: Where does the dollar go the furthest?
Ensenada report- compared to socal
Restaurants, 1/3 for cheap food, you can also pay US prices for fancy. When the three of us eat out it's usually between $6.00-$15.00 total.
Slip, 1/3 - 1/2
Medicine, less than 10%
Car rental, double
Clothing, 1/2-3/4 unless you want name brands, then go to Ca.
Boat parts, go to San Diego
Consumables like oil, antifreeze, etc., a little less.
Manufactured goods like welders, air compressors, tools, X 1.25 or go to San Diego
Fuel, about 2/3 but it varies depending on where in the US you're buying. Diesel is about $2.50 now. I paid $5.45 in Newport.
