GDL sure isn't cheap either, particularly restaurants.  

No, but it is a big city with big city prices and a burgeoning upper class. It had wealthy businessmen and moguls a hundred years ago, when lakeside was just a country fishing village. I can't imagine how the poor in the neglected barrios even survive.

I agree and think to some degree our proximity to GDL causes higher costs for everyone.  We are basically a suburb now.

Maids and gardeners lakeside are paid much more than they are in Guadalajara. The other thing is the quality of the work is much lower lakeside. 

Again this is what I call the Gringo Guilt Complex, for which I was excoriated for by someone here earlier...but hey, I call it like I see it!!!
