Description

How does the consultation work?

This half-day 3-hour morning or afternoon session is ideal for a private in-depth question and answer session about life and living in Uruguay. It works very well online or face-to-face. Online we’ll meet on the video platform of your choice (Zoom, Skype, FaceTime). You’ll be amazed how time flies. On site in Montevideo it may include an in-depth visit to one neighbourhood, or taster visits to two neighbourhoods. Prior to the meeting, you will complete a questionnaire (we recommend over a good glass of South American red) regarding yourself, your expectations and your lifestyle. Your answers will guide our conversation. This consultation can take place on weekdays or weekends.

“I’m no rookie, having been an expat from the U.S. for 20 years. I had been to Uruguay many times and generally knew my way around, yet Karen’s insights over the three hours together were invaluable and highly useful. And I would have expended a lot of resources learning on my own what Karen was able to concisely share with me. Her suggestions, recommendations and contacts have been extremely helpful. Her consultation service is highly recommended.” – Larry took a Deep Dive with Karen in 2021

Your opportunity to have private one-on-one time with Karen A Higgs, author, Guru’Guay founder and Uruguay’s foremost English-language expert.

It’s all about local contacts

Like most places in the world and especially in Uruguay, the best experiences and services come by word of mouth. After over two decades in Uruguay and thanks to her ground-breaking work bringing Uruguay to an international audience, Karen has hundreds of trusted contacts in a broad range of fields to share with you.

Why consult about moving to Uruguay?

Uruguay is not a good fit for everyone. No place is perfect, right? And an advantage for one person is a pitfall for another. You’ll receive first-hand, realistic insights tailored to your specific circumstances.

Why consult with Karen A Higgs?

Karen is the creator of Guru’Guay, the most popular English-language website on Uruguay. She has lived in Uruguay since 2000.  Her Guru’Guay guidebooks to Uruguay and Montevideo have been recognised by the Uruguay Ministry of Tourism and the Government of Montevideo as an essential reference for both travellers and expats. Karen is frequently invited to talk about Uruguay as a travel and lifestyle destination by international media—including the New York Times, the BBC and National Geographic–and on the world’s most listened to travel podcasts. The Uruguayan public has also fallen in love with Guru’Guay and Karen appears regularly in the national press.

Karen is British and studied in the UK and the US. She lived in the US, Costa Rica, Argentina and Spain before settling on Uruguay.

  1. Karen knows the ropes, and knows all the right people. I’m thrilled to have her on my side.

  2. My consultation with Karen was worth it!! She has a wonderful first-hand knowledge of Uruguay that only comes from living here and learning for as long as she has. She was extremely patient and sweet and custom to my needs and what I was looking for in Montevideo. Her referrals and knowledge of Uruguay are fantastic a jumpstart to anyone’s journey moving to or curious about Uruguay.

    Thank you Karen!!

    • Hey Daniel, thank you so much for your 5-star review. It was a good idea of yours to split your Deep Dive session into one hour online quite a few months before you travelled and then two hours together face to face. I was happy to do that! I look forward to hearing how things work out with the people I’ve referred you to. Keep me posted! It’s fabulous that people like yourself are planning to make Uruguay your home. We will all benefit! — Karen

  3. I’m no rookie, having been an expat from the U.S. for 20 years. I had been to Uruguay many times and generally knew my way around, yet Karen’s insights over the three hours together were invaluable and highly useful. And I would have expended a lot of resources learning on my own what Karen was able to concisely share with me. Her suggestions, recommendations and contacts have been extremely helpful. Her consultation service is highly recommended.

  4. Both time and money beyond well spent. Karen provided knowledge and contact information that would be impossible for me to gather on my own. She is truly a caring person and wants to help in any way possible.

    Her expertise extends in so many directions. For many of the questions I had she was able to send a message to someone in the know, while we were meeting, and almost immediately get
    a response. Very impressive and also shows how well connected she is and how much she is respected. It is obvious that Karen loves Uruguay and Uruguay loves her. And, how wonderful that Karen is willing to share her years of hard won knowledge. Truly a privilege to be able to work with her.

  5. Imagine you wanted to move to another country.
    Imagine said country was Uruguay.
    Imagine you had a very good friend who lived in said country…

    Well, imagine no longer and schedule a consultation with Karen Higgs! Having lived in Uruguay for quite some time, Karen is the ultimate source for every aspect of your relocation. She is well informed, well connected, knows Uruguay inside out, and is the ultimate guide with whom to begin your journey.

    I strongly recommend beginning with the 180 minute Deep Dive consultation which covers a remarkable amount of material. Karen can answer any and all of your questions, offer pertinent information and multiple resources, supply contact details for more specialized inquiries, put things in proper perspective, and is intuitive enough to give answers to questions you never even thought to ask. Not only that, you will have an absolute blast speaking with her; the 180 minutes literally fly by and no stone will be left unturned.

    So, definitely do not hesitate to schedule your meeting with Karen, and begin what is certain to be a fabulous journey with the invaluable assistance of a newfound friend.
