Karen A Higgs grew up in the South Wales Valleys. At 22 she found herself stranded in Mexico City airport with just a pocket Spanish dictionary for company. Since then she's lived most of her life in Latin America. She sang 60s covers in a psychedelic rock bar in Costa Rica. In Buenos Aires, she impressed her teenage English-language students by riding a 500 cc motorbike around town. In 2000, she moved to Uruguay to run the communications team of an international non-profit. Now the owner of an award-winning guesthouse in Montevideo's Old City, pleas from grateful guests to share her insider information more widely inspired the popular Guru'Guay website in 2014 and The Guru'Guay Guide to Montevideo in 2016. In November 2017, after scouring the country for over a year, she published The Guru'Guay Guide to Uruguay: Beaches, Ranches & Wine Country.
And feel free to get back to me on anything you’d like me to cover in Guru’guay – I love people to have the best time possible when they visit Uruguay. You can write to me on the website, Twitter or Facebook. You can also write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, but as I have limited time, a public post is more likely to get a response.
