Uruguay, a Beautiful and Safe Country to Visit in South America

by Chrystal
(Montevideo, Uruguay)

My husband and I have always wanted to live abroad (we're from the US), but never took the leap. Until recently. When our daughter was about 6 months old, we sat down and said, it's now or never. If we wait too long, she'll be in school, and we won't want to pull her out.


So we started doing some research on where to relocate to. We wanted to live in a safe, beautiful location with a low cost of living. When you start digging, you'll find your options are limited.

Then we came across Uruguay. Uruguay is safe. It's beautiful with both beaches and countryside. The climate is temperate. And the cost of living is still low.

So we sold everything, packed our bags, hopped on a plane and here we are! It's the best decision we ever made.

If you're looking for a more "unusual" place to visit in South America, consider Uruguay. You can read more on the Exploring Uruguay Website.

Just Visited - It Is Fun and Safe
by: Judy and Mark

We just spent a few days in Uruguay. Stayed with friends one night and drove up the coast to Piriapolis and Punta del Este. Easy to drive in and nice people. We're not ready to move, but we'd certainly go back to explore more!
