Is Montevideo ,Uruguay the most economically stable city in South America?

alicias7768 :
"to me Brazil"
homeless :
"Montevideo and Antofagasta, Chile"
Uruguay traveler :
"Uruguay in general is suffering a bit of an economic downturn. Their economy is closely tied to that of Argentina's, which is somewhat stagnant right now. If you're planning to visit, you can find good deals on lodging and food. You can go anywhere in the country on their bus system, which is very clean and comfortable, for next to nothing. Taxi rides in Montevideo are pretty inexpensive. Durable goods are more expensive than you would find in the US."
Gustavo CL :
"Yes, Montevideo is very stable, since 1970 nothing changed in the city! Ha haha ha! The cars and the buildings, nothing changes! The South American Havana!"
Lizzie :

My husband has been transfered to Montevideo. Any suggestions on neighbourhoods?

umoanev :
"I have been three times to Uruguay and I would suggest you look for a house in Carrasco which is a very nice and up scaly neighbourhood in Montevideo. Once living there, dont forget to visit Colonia de Sacramento, a very nice town which is the last Portuguese settlement in America. And of course visit Punta del Este every summer if you can!"
Lizzie :

I have 3 children, ages 6, 12 and 14. I would like a school in Montevideo where all of them can attend together. Preferably american or british?

umoanev :
"I just answered your question on neighbourghoods in Montevideo. In Carrasco, there is the British School of Montevideo which I have visited twice for work. It goes from Kindergarten all the way up to IB. It is a British school, lovely facilities and to me, it's the best school in Montevideo. Very good world test results in PYP, MYP and IB. They offer a variety of extra curricular activities too. Visit their web page ("
