The Uruguayan capital is the most expensive and the best to live in the region. At least that's what the studies of The Economist, which positioned Montevideo behind Mexico City in terms of cost, and the consultancy Mercer, which places the capital at the top of Latin American quality of life ranking, revealed in publications made this month. El País (Madrid) explains that Montevideo has a “crazy decadent charm”. However, why does this phenomenon occur?
Caracas, in the last place, and Montevideo ranks as the two opposite poles of the list of cities ordered by quality of life in Latin America in 2019, according to Mercer. The capital of Austria, Vienna, ranked for the tenth consecutive year as the best in the world.
