    This gorgeous colonial town in central Mexico has a vibrant expatriate community, which has created a somewhat mixed bag for newcomers. While you'll find many residents friendly and capable of speaking English, the price of real estate has risen with the city's popularity.

    Still, your overall cost of living in San Miguel de Allende will be a bargain, with a total estimated budget that's just a hair more than George Town's, at $1,136 per month. Estimated rent: $500, doctor's visit: $30, transportation: $70.
