What is the cost of living in Bariloche?

Like any other city you can make it much cheaper or much more expensive based on how you live and where you live. Many comments can be read on the rapidly devaluating local currency and the surprisingly strange differences between what’s expensive and what’s not (e.g. imported vs. local products). Here are some hints on your possible expenses: Accommodation: The prices may vary a lot depending on your location preferences and lifestyle. We can arrange home stays where you live with a nice family, have your private room at a decent location, for $215 per week. Prices are higher if you want more independency and comfort. Food: If you cook for yourself this is the term where you can win the most compared to the USA and Europe. Supermarket shopping, especially for meat is considerably cheaper. A rough estimate of food costs is about US$8 for a person per day (without dining out). Dining out: The city offers endless options for dining out. Differences can be witnessed from barrio to barrio, but you can get a very nice in a steak house (parilla) with wine and dessert per person at approximately US$20 and up per person. Transportation: Another huge win! Single-ride public transportation tickets cost approx. US$0,5. Taxis and ”remises” are a very common means of transport, and are also cheaper than in Europe: a 10 minute taxi ride is about US$5. However, do not expect to get good deals for electronics and clothing. They are 2-3 times more expensive in Bariloche than in the USA.
