Mauritius is not a country that can be said having cities in it. There is only one city which is Port Louis and the country itself can be considered as a city. London or New York or Paris Or Los Angeles are considered cities not Vacoas or Curepipe. The price to live is more or less same everywhere, except land prices differ thats all. The quality of life is same almost everywhere in the world now. You earn good money, you live a decent life, you don't earn enough you will be living through struggles. Thats about it!

Its true what he has said about Mauritius

Hi.. closer you are to the capital, Port Louis.. its a bit more expensive than living further away .... i was in Mauritius for about 15/20 days and this is what my observation is. I was there to understand the conditions - first hand.
