Montevideo - Post Report Question and Answers

Morale among expats:

Relatively good. Most of the complaints are about parking, traffic, and crime. - May 2013

Pretty good, though some people complain that it's boring here and they are tired of the bland food. - Mar 2012

Depends on who you talk to, but I'd say fair to low. A few like it, but I know many more who don't. It's not unheard of for people to curtail. Anybody who tells you it's a "garden post" is WRONG! Most people are disillusioned to discover that Uruguay is not tropical, has terrible bland food, and the people are cold, aloof and unfriendly as a whole. There's really NOTHING to do here. - Jan 2009
