Mauritius

I'm moving to Mauritius for work in a few months. I'll live there for at least three months, might be several years depending.
What can I expect?
Any tips from anons who've lived there, practical things to know, and so on?

    Problem with these tiny isolated countries is you're gonna have a hard time finding anyone from there

        Pereybere and the area around there is relly nice to live.

        depends what time of the year youre going to be there for rainy season etc.

        its really nice. getting around you need to have your own car.
        taxis are a hassle and expensive.

        I stayed for a month. I would definitely go back theres tons of parties if youre into that

        it is still a sleepy island town, things open late and close early.

        to own a boat and have it in the ocean if youre not natively mauritian is a nightmare and almost impossible

        food wise theres lots of imported food from the eu priced around the same in euros also.

        internet and mobile coverage is good and really cheap.

        strange thing is International consumer goods are hard to get.

        start learning some basic french. you can get away with just english but french would help a lot

          for places to live Bain Boeuf as well.
          Its like youre literally in india and then the next road over the suburbs

          the island doest look big and hard to get from one to the other end quickly but the max speed on the highways is 80km/h and traffic sometimes can be horrendous so it will take a long time to travel long distances

          Not him but I'd be interested in spending time in mauritius, which cities are easiest to find a job in as an expat? Any job is fine I want to live simply and experience life there not be a disconnected expat

            you dont need to bump things

            unless youre very highly skilled and have some company paying for you to come over i wouldnt do it. from what i saw local salaries are low and would have to be fluent in french

          I enjoyed my trip to Mauritius but oddly enough had a nightmare a year or two later about needing a taxi to go out and having it cost infinity dollars kek

          That seems like a dumb policy for a tropical island country that would otherwise be a major destination for rich yacht owners.

        Yes. Maby the most realistic option is to go light sailing. You dont need licence, these boats cost 1000$ or you can get into a club
