Budgeting for Life in Spain

Spain is one of the cultural centers of Europe, a place where the people celebrate life, dance the flamenco, and enjoy wine and tapas. This birthplace of such great artists as Picasso and Salvador Dali, rich with history and fantastic old architecture mixed in with the modern new, is not quite as expensive as you may have thought. In some areas, it’s very affordable.

Spain is so diversified…there’s a place for every type of expat from a single retiree to a couple with children. The key to a happy life in Spain is finding the area that suits you. If you’re a culture vulture, you may appreciate Barcelona, Seville, or Madrid. If it’s sun, sand, and sea you’re after, take a look at the Costas. Even if it’s a green and seasonal area you seek, you have the northern Atlantic coast. It’s all available in Spain, and you can enjoy life there for less than US$2,000 per month.
