I was in Montevideo last week. I combined my trip with Buenos Aires and Mendoza. I was expecting a lot of good things for Uruguay (also passed through Colonia, did not go to Punta del Este). But I must say that MTV looks a bit like it has passed its glory days a while ago. The city looks like it hasn't been maintained in many years. Most roads and pavements are broken, lots of run-down buildings. Never felt unsafe though. The best way to describe it would be "mellow". Uruguay had a mellow feeling to it. I was expecting Argentina to be more mellow and Uruguay to be up to scratch but it was definitely the other way around. To me Uruguay was a bit of a let-down.

I was their in November and felt the same way. My best description would be overpriced (compared to BA)and uninspiring! Will never return.

Wouldn't that describe most SA cities?

Have not "partaken" in at least 20 years.

Hello,

I think Peru should give more easiness and hazzle-free environment to retired pensioner

WoodChuck

Peru has an Investor Visa for people with 500,000 soles ; about 150,000 usd

Not so bad, if it is compared to Uruguay where actually is asked for 1,800,000 usd .. they plan to reduce it to 500,000 usd

Some years ago, Peru asked 30,000 usd !

I liked Uruguay but I think I would get bored there, it's very quiet.

It has better beaches than Peru though.
