How does the consultation work?

Your private Uruguay relocation consultation takes place on the video platform of your choice (Zoom, Skype, FaceTime). 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 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. If you are planning to relocate to Uruguay then start with the Guru Karen! She looks at your plans with a realistic view and can get you so much more way on important issues in a short period of time. Do not hesitate and book a consultation with her you will not regret it!

    • Tom, thank you so much for the 5-star review. Very much looking forward to our VIP Day face to face next month! — Karen

  2. Karen, I wanted to take a moment to let you know how much I appreciated the two consultations we had these past months. As a Uruguayan living in the USA for the past 50 years and not knowing much about relocation information it was truly a pleasure to talk to someone that loves Uruguay as much as you do.
    You have been 100% reliable and trustworthy and did an excellent job communicating with me and explaining what was expected. You fulfilled every promise you made, on time. You exceeded all of my expectations.
    Thank you so much for promoting Uruguay!

    • Maria, it’s always a real thrill to me when I can advise Uruguayans like yourself. Thank you so much for your wonderful review. Know I am here for you! — Karen

  3. Insightful and realistic information provided. Karen clearly has a remarkable understanding of Uruguay and is able to transfer that information that best suits her clients individual needs. Very fortunate to have had a consultation with Karen prior to my move to Uruguay. Will most certainly recommend Karen’s consultation service to anyone seeking relocation to Uruguay.

  4. Karen is a treasure! Her knowledge is invaluable, her love of Uruguay is infectious, and her passion for the work she does shines through! As my family plans to visit and potentially move to Uruguay, Karen’s insights helped us gain more clarity about these decisions in a very short amount of time. Her pre-meeting questionnaire helped us focus and prepare for the meeting but it was evident that Karen had done her homework based on what we wrote to ensure she provided the most current and helpful information. She was straightforward in talking about budget/finances and language and the feasibility of relocating to Uruguay successfully. We also appreciate the referrals and resources she emailed to us after the meeting. I highly recommend this service and believe it’s a worthy investment in your travel or moving plans!

  5. My fiance’ and I were fortunate to meet Karen as we researched various aspects of moving to and living in Uruguay. Initially, we spent a lot of time on the internet reading about the country, its culture, climate and other important topics, but we were having a hard time pulling all of the diverse information together. Karen helped us tremendously by providing context as well as opening up her rolodex for professional contacts. Her help and assistance were invaluable!
