Electricity is cheap in Mexico if you only use a small amount and very expensive if you use a lot. I have heard of monthly bills that varied from $5 usd/month (about what I pay) to many hundreds of dollars a month for someone with A/C, a heated pool or electric heating.Everything i've read about Merida is the HEAT. Im guessing everybody has the A/C on 24 hours a day. Is the electric rates lower than the US? what is the average electric bill in Merida? (US dollars) Is the electricity dependable?
