Too often lumped in with North America, Mexico is a country that stands out on its own.

Hey guys,

I'm in India right now, but my visa runs out soon. Was thinking of moving to somewhere warm for a few months so I can knuckle down and get some work done (I do internet marketing). So I want to find somewhere cheap to live (US$500 a month or under), hopefully on the beach, with a chilled out vibe, and a good reliable internet connection. I've always wanted to learn Spanish so thought this would be a great opportunity, thats why I'm posting in the Mexico section... I also posted the same thing on the South America, Central America, and Caribbean/West Indies section.

Any ideas?

P.S. I love to scuba dive. It's not a deciding factor, but somewhere with good diving would be a plus too :)

Mexico is not particularly cheap. I answered your CA thread. Consider Colombia and Ecuador too.

Cheap Places to Live, Pacific Coast Mexico
Let me suggest two favorite places on the Pacific Coast of Mexico, Zipolite Beach in Oaxaca and Zihuatanejo.
Rents at Zipolite run from 200 USD and up. Diving is available from boats out of nearby Puerto Angel. Dining can be cheap or elegant and there is nightlife and reliable internet. In the summer months there are plenty of rentals available.
I spent four weeks in December and January for 12 USD/ night with Wifi and daily maid service. (Avoid Christmas, New Years and Easter if you can as this is high season)
We took some great day trips north and south by collective cab and bus: Mazunte turtles, Ventanilla lagoon tour, crocodiles, Puerto Escondido, surfing.
Zihuatanejo in Guerrero State, northwest of Acapulco is more expensive but still within your budget. Zihuatanejo offers a great harbor, small wave beaches, diving, sport fishing, and a beach walkway for recreation. Surfing to the north and south is reached by combi, collective cab.
