What do I need to know before moving to Carmelo?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Carmelo, they said...

"Carmelo is a small, tranquil town known for its wineries, beaches, and relaxed lifestyle. The official language is Spanish, so it would be beneficial to have a basic understanding of the language before moving. The cost of living in Carmelo is relatively low compared to other parts of Uruguay, but it's still higher than in many other South American countries. The local currency is the Uruguayan peso, and while credit cards are accepted in many places, it's always a good idea to have some cash on hand. The healthcare system in Uruguay is of a high standard, with both public and private options available. Expats are eligible for the public healthcare system once they become legal residents. The climate in Carmelo is temperate, with warm summers and mild winters. The town is safe and the crime rate is low, but like anywhere, it's important to take basic safety precautions. The food in Carmelo is a mix of traditional Uruguayan dishes and international cuisine, with a strong emphasis on beef and seafood. The education system in Uruguay is free and compulsory for children between the ages of 4 and 15. There are also private schools available, some of which offer bilingual education. The town is well-connected with other parts of the country by road and river, but public transportation within the town is limited. Uruguayans are known for their friendly and welcoming nature, and the pace of life in Carmelo is slow and relaxed. The town has a strong sense of community, and local festivals and events are a big part of life. Finally, it's important to note that while Uruguay is a progressive country in many ways, traditional gender roles and attitudes are still prevalent," explained one expat living in Carmelo, Uruguay.
