What are the pros and cons of living in Punta del Diablo?

Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in Punta del Diablo responded:

"Expats and digital nomads generally like the laid-back atmosphere, beautiful beaches, and friendly locals in Punta del Diablo. They appreciate the low cost of living, fresh seafood, and the opportunity to immerse themselves in the local culture. The small-town vibe and the natural beauty of the surroundings, including the Santa Teresa National Park, are also attractive features for those looking for a peaceful and relaxed lifestyle. On the other hand, some expats and digital nomads may dislike the limited availability of amenities and services in Punta del Diablo, as it is a small town. The internet connectivity can be unreliable, which can be a significant drawback for digital nomads who rely on stable connections for work. Additionally, the town can become quite crowded during the peak tourist season, which may be off-putting for some. The language barrier can also be a challenge for those who do not speak Spanish, as English is not widely spoken in the area. Finally, the limited public transportation options and distance from major cities may make it difficult for expats and digital nomads to travel and explore other parts of Uruguay," explained one expat living in Punta del Diablo.
