While Uruguay is one of the smallest countries in South America, it has distinguished itself as being one of the more attractive expatriate destinations. It is know know for its high quality of life and good healthcare. Also, happily for the English-only speaking internationals, most Uruguayans are able to communicate in basic English (even though their official language is Spanish). Uruguay is also a safe country although petty crime can be a nuisance at times. Clearly, Uruguay, with its stunning coastline, lush and wild interior and elegant and comfort-rich capitol is one of the more enviable locations in South America.

Cost of Living

Cost of living

Residing in Uruguay is not bad on a budget. Indeed, according to Xpatulator’s July 2016 report, the cost of living in Uruguay is about at the international average. This becomes apparent when one purchases any number of goods and services. Cheaper items include transport and groceries while housing accommodations, furniture and restaurant meals are pricier. Still, healthcare, alcohol and Internet are quite reasonable. All and all, assuming the western expatriate teacher is able to negotiate a fair remuneration from his or her international school employer, he or she should be able to live very comfortably.
