Zihuatanejo Inflation Discussion

There has been some discussion about the inflation of taxi fares from the posted official rates.

I expect there are other examples of inflation affecting users of the board, as well as inflation that affects local workers/residents.

Recently I was looking for a one-week car rental in January 2023. The price quoted was 40% higher than what I paid in October and November 2022, only two and three months ago. The reason given was, “The price went up because auto parts and maintenance is expensive.”

I have received an email advising me of price increases by my accountant. I haven’t read it yet, so I don’t know the details.

I have received an email with advice about the best methods to provide what is considered to be inevitable increases in wages and benefits to employees.

Inflation is a Global problem.

Absolutely inflation is in many places.

I could discuss some of the inflationary effects I see where I live when not in Mexico, but that would seem to be “off topic” for this message board.

We increased the pay of our gardener and maid by 20% the first pay day of January. Prices are definitely going up for all of us.

Interestingly, they haven't mentioned it, and have already had the increase twice. Maybe cultural??
