BsAs Cost of Living

There are many apartments advertised in Las Cañitas with monthly expenses around 3 k. My cousin owns one in posh Chenault Boulevard - two bedrooms, 60 square meters overlooking the polo field, expensas: three thousand pesos a month. At 25 pesos per dollar, that is US$ 120 a month.
