Good evening. I am looking for an area where there are USA or english speaking expats in Uruguay. I am looking an expat group if possible. I have a few questions and if you could direct me in the right direction, that would be great.
1. What are housing costs, food costs?
2. Do you know of any expat communities of english speaking people?
3. I heard health care is free. Is that true? If not, what are the health care costs?
4. How much are tutors/ schooling for my teen age children? What do expats do with regards to schooling children abroad? I'm looking to stay for about 6 months.
5. What is the power of the dollar compared to the local currency?
Thank you very much for your time. If you could assist that would be great. Thanks

you should join Discover Uruguay or a number of the other Expat groups on Facebook as all of these questions and more have been answered. I've been here 5 years and love it.

I will warn you that UY is expensive especially in relation to normal salaries here... if you can work remotely or find a decent job tho you don't need much to live comfortably. I survive on around a $1,000 a month.

Have you tried the search function on this site? There are many informative threads on these topics. If you are considering speaking only English, I must warn you that Uruguay is a difficult (impossible?) country to live in if you do not speak Spanish. The government does not and will not work with you in English; you will need to be fluent in Spanish or have interpreters with you. Perhaps there are people who live here without speaking Spanish who can share their experiences on this forum. We already spoke fluently, and made a couple month long exploratory trips before moving to Uy, to drive Southern Uruguay, find a region to our liking, and to make sure we would like Uy. One trip in January to see Summer and trip in June to see winter. Though we are finally legal residents and love it here, Uruguay is NOT for everyone.

There are many between Solis and up the coast towards Jose Ignacio. Find the on FaceBook. There may still be some expat monthly meetings. I lived there for almost three years. Message me if you want more info. But, bottom line, it is quite expensive to live there and good, tightly built houses with good heating are not easy to find. There are countries that are across the board better and cheaper.
