Why choose Uruguay?
The first question we need to answer is always “Is Uruguay for me?”
My primary suggestion to everyone I come across wanting to immigrate is to come for a visit. Drive around the country and explore all your option, and ask as many questions as you can. Take notes, because believe me when you get back home you won’t remember every little detail. Have a look at properties and decide which lifestyle best suits your needs. Uruguay truly has a lifestyle and a region for everyone, depending on what you’re looking for in the way of a new life abroad.
If you have children, schooling plays an important role, which would also be a deciding factor. There are many private schools in Montevideo and in Punta del Este.
Health care is readily available throughout the country. There are two health care systems: firstly the public health care: In the public system the free clinics can be slow and crowded but they do a good job. Secondly you have the private health care system: The private health care system is efficient, well-equipped, and inexpensive.
Uruguay has a generally warm temperate climate. Warm summers from December to February, and crisp winters from June to August, although I must admit this last summer was extremely hot and the winter was very mild, but then we seem to be seeing noticeable climate change all over the world.
Public transport is excellent both inside and outside the cities. For those choosing not to own a car, you can get around very well with public transportation system.
Uruguay has a lifestyle and a region for everyone, depending on what you’re looking for in the way of a new life abroad. Whether you want to live in the city, on a smallholding where you can grow your own vegetable and become self-sustaining, or on a sprawling ranch in the heartlands, you can be sure that Uruguay has a place for you.
