"Hopefully you know that Uruguay is the most expensive country in Latin America" Is this really true or was it assumed the costs in Punta del Este represent the rest of the country. While PdE is relatively expensive, I found other locations such as Carmelo and Fray Bentos to be less expensive. PdE is a very unique location in Uruguay and does not represent the characteristics of the rest of the country.

EXPENSIVE: says it all. I live on SS + a small bit. I have some savings, but the article turned me off. It looks like colombia may be much much cheaper and far more culturally wealthy. Love jw
