What do I need to know before moving to Cabo Polonio?

Answer this Question

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

"Cabo Polonio, is a remote village located on the eastern coast of the country, known for its rustic charm and natural beauty. It is not easily accessible by car, and the most common way to reach it is by taking a 4x4 truck or walking through the sand dunes. The village is off the grid, meaning there is no electricity or running water, so expats should be prepared for a lifestyle that is closer to nature. The local language is Spanish, so it would be beneficial to have a basic understanding of the language, although English is also spoken by some locals and tourists. The local currency is the Uruguayan Peso, and it's important to have cash on hand as there are no ATMs or banks in the village. The village is home to a small community of residents, and the lifestyle is very laid-back and relaxed. The main activities in Cabo Polonio are enjoying the beaches, exploring the sand dunes, and visiting the local lighthouse. There are also a few small shops, restaurants, and hostels. The weather in Cabo Polonio can be quite variable, with hot summers and cool winters. It's important to pack accordingly, with warm clothing for the cooler months and lighter clothing for the summer. Rain can be frequent, so waterproof clothing and footwear are also recommended. Healthcare facilities are limited in Cabo Polonio, so expats should ensure they have adequate health insurance that covers medical evacuation in case of serious illness or injury. It's also advisable to bring any necessary medications with you, as there are no pharmacies in the village. Internet access is limited and often unreliable in Cabo Polonio, so expats should be prepared for a digital detox. This can be a challenge for those who rely on the internet for work or staying in touch with family and friends. Living in Cabo Polonio offers a unique opportunity to experience a simpler way of life, close to nature. However, it's not for everyone, and it's important to visit first to see if it's the right fit for you," said a member in Cabo Polonio, Uruguay.
