#Romina on Jul 15, 2015 :
Hi!
These prices are not correct, real prices are much higher than indicated here.
Please update.
Thanks
#Qadir on Feb 13, 2015 :
Biggest and single major difference in the above list is the RENT.

I am living in Montevideo from last 11 Months. Rent is way to high.
1 BEDROOM Apartment (Furnished) : $900-1000 USD (Including Maintenance Charges)
2 BEDROOM Apartment (Furnished) : $1200-1250 USD (Including Maintenance Charges)

On top of it, Municipal Taxes (Every 2 months): $25 USD
Internet Cost like $50 USD (Monthly)
Electricity is way to costly: Minimum Electricity bill is $60-70 USD (Monthly)

Food Expenses: $200-250 USD (Minimum per person)

Food Expenses for a family of 2(+2): $400-500 USD (Monthly)
#Anonymous on Feb 06, 2015 :
The prices are a little lower than current prices now in Feb. 2015, and also the "average incoome" almost made me burst in laughter...that's waay too high, I would say "average" would be around $15,000 BEFORE taxes.
#Lucia on Feb 03, 2015 :
Be careful about this prices. Uruguay's inflation is changing prices way too quickly to pick up by Numbeo's crowdsourcing.

For example:
* "One-way Ticket (Local Transport)" is fixed by the state: $U24 today. And in the page it says $U22.
* 1lt milk: it's also fixed by the state, $U19 (you can check at Tienda Inglesa, listed link here), when it says $17 on the page.

That's a 10% difference, and in non state-regulated prices, the difference is even bigger.
My point is, expect living costs 10-15% more expensive than listed here.

if someone is plannig to visit uruguay and need data just send me an email

#DroBuddy on May 09, 2014 :
All prices are in Uruguayan Pesos, and the prices listed above are for monthly expenses.

https://www.google.com/search?client=ubuntu&channel=fs&q=currency+exchange&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8#channel=fs&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&q=1%20USD%20to%20UYU This link is to Google's currency exchange rates from $U Pesos to USD (but can easily be changed to Euro, British Pound, Aussie Dollars, et al.

And, for the record, a quick search on Google (literally only took a few seconds) would have answered both of your questions, so please do your own due diligence next time. Albeit, I'm sure others will have the same question so I chose to answer real quick. But, honestly, if a quick search (or common sense) is too much of a hassle for you, then please don't consider moving to another country... You are just fine where you are now.
#D. Marcus on Mar 15, 2014 :
Are the comparisons done in USD$
#weilunion on Dec 25, 2013 :
Are these prices for the month? There is no indication of what period of time these prices are for. Can you help?

Thanks
