Living in Uruguay is an opportunity to enjoy a “quiet” lifestyle, and a mix of Latin American culture with European roots.

Uruguay is an open-minded society, where cultural activities, food experiences—especially for meat and wine lovers—and intercultural environments are part of daily life. Founded by immigrants, its people are known for being friendly and warm, always ready to share a barbecue or a round of mates.   

Its temperate climate is extremely pleasant, with four well-defined seasons and an average annual temperature of 17°C, so a jacket and a wool hat will be enough to get you through the winter.

It is the most egalitarian country in Latin America and ranks first in terms of low corruption and democracy value. Its capital Montevideo is considered the city with the best quality of life in Latin America.

It is also the only country in the world that managed to successfully implement the One Laptop Per Child program - Plan Ceibal, and has the best internet connectivity in Latin America, which will allow you to access high-speed internet from anywhere in the country.

For these reasons and many more, in Uruguay you will find the perfect combination of modernity and calm. A quiet lifestyle, where you can breathe fresh air, which at the same time offers cutting-edge services, thanks to its high digitalization, technological development, and a great diversity of leisure options for all tastes and ages.
