Hello,
I wrote some prices but I have a BIG doubt: Why are there 3 ceros (000) after the numbers? I meant 36 thousands and 5 houndereds dollars for a VW golf (that is my own car) but then I saw that the price was 36 and a half dollars: Please correct it
Sorry
Then I signed agayn for new prices, so a lettuce cost 1,500 (one and a half dollar) is it right?

Ok, I hope didnĀ“t do anything wrong!

See you and ask me if you find something strange...

For Punta del Este there is a huge difference between "in season", basically January and part of February. Population explodes, rents increase by a factor of 10, shops raise their prices. People who live in Punta del Este year round shop in Maldonado 5 minutes away for substantially less. During the off season restaurants offer special deals, menus of the day etc.

This is a tricky place to put on an index. There is almost zero crime in the off season but with the tourists and summer residents come thieves as well.
