Canelones—the second largest department, or state, in Uruguay—is home to world-class wineries, secluded beaches, the nation’s busiest industrial corridor (Google’s bought land there) and a real estate boom.
Incredibly it’s been a bit of a secret with nothing written in English till 2022 when Guru’Guay joined forces with Balsa & Asociados to ‘put Canelones on the map‘.

Buying a new build in Canelones Uruguay
2021 ended with some big news for my family. We bought an investment property in the department of Canelones, 20 minutes from the capital and near the airport.
Canelones is not an area that I ever would’ve considered before but I met a guy called Juan Balsa in a business meeting. He turned out to be a property developer and we hit it off.
