This is a tiny country with basically one town of note, two if you like going to Buenos Ares (Colonial del Sacramento & Montevideo). I spent a month there and came away with the notion that life is very hard for the locals. I was expecting to see less expensive food, but outside of produce, you'll pay more. I was hoping it would be more like Rio Grande Do Sul (Brasil). It's NOT. Clearly it is the independent northern satellite state of Argentina. The food was awful (Unlike Brasil). It's an ok place for a vacation, but to live there? No work, unless you can do it online or farm. Lots of property for sale on the gold coast. Every other house was for rent or sale. They're HURTING. It was (March-April of 2019) gray, dreary and depressing much of the time. Unless you want to go there to LEGALLY farm cannabis (they all smoke Yerba Mate and have no clue) I can't see a good reason. That's my 2 cents.
