Is it too soon to apartment shop?

If you are willing to consider areas like out at El Hujal neighborhood you should be able to find two bedrooms with basic A.C. within your budget. Walking to the center is possible (I did that for a few months) but the public transport system (combis) are quite efficient and affordable as well.

As others have mentioned electricity is quite expensive so plan on spending quite a bit on that. The first few months I was here, in the middle of summer, I couldn't sleep without the air conditioner. I have since acclimated better but we also now live in near the beach and up high so almost always have a breeze. We haven't used the air conditioner for ourselves in several months but use a fan on most nights to help cool it off when the breeze dies down and keep the mosquitoes off of us.

Bottom line, I think you can find something that will work for you but you may need to expand your options for where you are willing to live.

I am willing to share some of the places I found when I first moved down here if you want to private message me.

Good luck!
