Which are the best sites for the following ?

Hi Everyone.
My family and I are wanting to move to Uruguay from south africa in 2019.

We are looking for help on all aspects.
We'll be moving with 3 of our dogs, 1 daughter will be 13 and the other daughter will be 19 in 2019.

We can not speak Spanish but are trying to learn at least the basics.

Which are the best sites for the following :
Jobs, pet friendly accommodation (rottweiler x husky dogs  who will be 3 in 2019) so will need to be fenced property, school for youngest daughter.

What is the main currency as all I've read shows pricing on most things in dollars.

Any help or advice would be much appreciated.


Hi Vannesa,

For your young daughter, there are bilingual schools available e.g. elbio Fernandez or Anglo but remember these are private schools hence will charge you heavy fee.

For jobs it depends where you wanna work but most of them requires good hold on spanish language.

You can find Pet friendly accommodation in both apartments and fenced only in private houses (which are away from Centro e.g. near carrasco)

Main currency is Pesos but Dollar can also be used in big retail shops.


Thanks Ash.
We definitely want to stay out of town in a house.
Managed to get hold of the UK English school, so we ok on that front..
And we've managed to get a Spanish to English translator app, so I know that will help a bit.

Thank you so much for your response.

The only thing to be worried is that out of town is not safe to stay.


If the app is google translator, I dont think it will help you a lot as uruguayan spanish is little bit different from normal spanish...
