This is my second trip to the Dayman termas but there are others in this province of Uruguay.
About 80 km from Salto are the Termas of Arapey with five star hotels, water parks, restaurants, shopping, The Dayman termas are only a short bus ride out of Salto and the facilities here are not pretentious, These mineral baths, however, bring tourists and money into the town throughout the year.
Leaving the termas and strolling the surrounding village, I consider how it would be to own a place here to use myself and rent when I travel, for income.
Near the back of the Dayman village I find such a property. This complex, as described by its large billboard in front, has the latest nuances and features its own hot pools, wi-fi, laundry room, patios and balconies, and security. It is not too large, but at 45 units there will be monthly fees and management costs.
Walking the area, I figure there has to be more in Salto than fishing for dorado’s and hot soaks to entice me to invest and move to this part of Uruguay. I like the beach and they don’t have many golf courses here. We have termas in New Mexico and I don’t speak Spanish.
I decide, rationally, to keep my eyes open for a good place to have lunch and put real estate business in the pending file.
Today, owning nothing, feels like the perfect solution for my life.
Making money sounds fantastic but the process of making it always seems to come with tangled details.
Working and retirement are two words that shouldn’t have much in common.
