Just a quick review on the housing, petrol and taxes! Worst case scenario on some
2 Bedroom apartment =Rs5000-7000 depending on location (upper band in towns and city)
Electricity bill = Rs 1000 monthly
Water and Waste Water bill = Rs400
Housing Council tax = Rs 1000 (in towns)
Road tax (depends on cc of your car) for a 1600cc = Rs4500 per annum
It depends on the ranges (<1500cc should be less and >1750cc should be more)
Actual petrol cost (after recent 20% price drop) = Rs 40 Litre
Pets require licenses?? LOL don't treat them as objects!!!
If you're bringing them from your country they'll have to undergo quarantine and its gonna cost you on top of their special travelling costs. Pets do require to be registered with the Mauritius SPCA and dunno about the cost but should be Rs500 including vaccination. To be Confirmed!
About the food item costs! I'm not sure about the integrity of your question in an itemwise way. Come on! you cannot decide on the things you're gonna eat. You must not forbid yourself eating stuff you like after you've spotted them on the shelves!
Anyways I'm looking for a price sheet for these weekly necessities but still buying fresh stuff and buying stuff from the supermarket makes their prices differ.
I'm not in Mauritius right now and haven't been there since 2yrs dunno much about their actual price now. sorry but can't find any website for local supermarkets neither. DAMN I hope someone else might help.
Quite expensive (but affordable for someone from Finland) due to the fact that they are really hammered with taxes (some 200%). If you elaborated on some makes of the drinks and cigarttes you preferred, some people could help you.
MY PERSONAL ADVICE:
Come to mauritius...Enjoy yourself...Forget about those things for a while...Let your body recover from all this toxicity that has built up after too much smoking and drinking.. Take a deep breath..catch the damn Marlin after a 25 minutes reeling struggle...Drink moderately and smoke a thag when being photographed with your catch! and lastly....
DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE: make your stay in Mauritius safe and special!
