Education is a top priority so teachers are trained with high regulations. Without a contract one can expect to make approximately $3000 pesos per hour, good schools pay from $4000 to $5000 pesos per hour. Regular hours are not always guaranteed as the teacher has to show some type of commitment before more will be issued. The cost of living is fairly high in contrast to other countries in South America. One has to budget accordingly in order to make a comfortable salary. With ingenuity one can make the necessary connections and get affordable housing so that costs are not so high. Hostels offer great long term rates of up to approximately $300 US per month and apartments cost up to approximately $470 US per month.
