Christmas In Punta del Diablo (Uruguay)

I figure if you are going to spend Christmas alone, might as well do it from a quiet beach. Without cars, internet, malls, christmas trees and music, turkeys and hams, tinsel and static electricity, it wasn’t too bad.

    Roosh, I wonder what the cost of real estate is there in Uruguay. How much for a half acre or quarter acre of land close to the beach?

    Happy Holidays! I drank to you…….a lot.

    A 500 M^2 lot (approx. 16m by 32m) two or three blocks off the beach runs about US$20K to US$30K right now. Two years ago they were closer to US$8K.

    My brother just built a new Hostel and bar there and my parents own two lots just about 3 blocks from the ocean. (

    The one side of the city slopes up-hill as you move away from the ocean, so even lots 4 blocks away have a good view of the ocean.

    I was there over thanksgiving, relaxing it is!

    Dan: I stayed in your brother’s hostel for a night, but he packed us in the dorms like cattle!!! There was no space to move around and getting up in the middle of the night to take a piss was a hazard. I was pissed! That and it was a party hostel with all the irish people. I went to a cabana after one night and got some sleep.
