I'm a single straight man 54 y/o and want to live in MVD. Can I live on 12,000 a year. No car, living in a one bedroom apt that doesn't have to be in the best area but I would like it to be safe. I like cable and the high speed internet and I would like to travel in UY.

I wish someone would answer your good question.

I hear that Uruguay is the only first world country with very super low cost of living....

Please any expats in Uruguay...what is the basic cost per month to live near the capital?

YES! absolutely! the most important part is the"no car". because cars are expensive and gasoline is among the highest priced in the world. but you have avoided all that. somehow, taxis are cheap. groceries are cheap. food is cheap. restauraunts are cheap. wine is cheap. beer is a little high. apartments are cheap.....but be sure you understand about the "gastos communes" (common costs)....because they can get expensive. houses are also available, and relatively cheap. safety is not an issue as long as you make an effort to blend in, and are not a loudmouth tourist. all-in-all, although my personal choice would not be to live in the city, it is a great place to live. I hope this helps. RP

the cost of living in UY is cheap by any standard....particurlarly when avoiding the cost and expenses involved with a vehicle. there is a lot of public transportation, and it is VERY reasonable. the further you go from downtown, the cheaper the cost of apartments gets...offset by the cost of getting downtown where all of the activity is. our somewhat lavish lifestyle (2 adults) with 3 cats included, is about $100/wk. apartments are about $300/mo. just avoid the car, and everything will be cheaper than you ever expected. rp
