On the Expatsi quiz, we ask why you want to leave the U.S. If your answer is, “it’s too conservative,” you might find your paradise in Uruguay. This small-in-population, socially liberal full democracy is highly rated for women’s and LGBTQIA+ rights, and it’s legal to grow or buy marijuana. Gun ownership is legal but regulated, especially in public spaces. The country experiences four mild seasons and offers the choice of living at a wide range of price points in an urban, beachside, or rural setting. It’s easy to explore Argentina or Brazil if you get itchy feet. Expats love the markets and quality of fresh foods, if not the availability of American packaged goods. While it’s not South America’s biggest bargain, Uruguay is beautiful and safe with high-quality, affordable healthcare.
