Compared to South America Uruguay or Ecuador how is he cost of living north of Lisboa. We are looking relocate? I like the Porto area.

Can you have a comfortable life at $1,800-2,500 US Dollars? In our travels we have always found it cheaper out of the big cities. Does that hold in outer lying cities there? Inflation has hit and we wonder.

Hi Franco. Only saw your questio now.
Comapritively, the cost of living is higher in some aspects, lower in others.
If you are looking to buy a house, it's a great time to do so due to market difficulties.
A Couple will live comfortably with 800 to 1000 euros per month. Porto is a nice area, but the Silver Coast, 150 KMS south, is a warmer and more pleasant area to live in
