It's expensive to travel within Uruguay and it's easy to feel isolated and really remote. Winter (June-August) is cold, damp and windy and most expats leave the country for the season, so it's best to have a plan and be prepared for being alone and indoors for those months if you stay behind. - Aug 2018
