    I am so glad that my wife and I could get in touch with other Austrian expats -- not only on Mauritius, but all over the world.

InterNations — A Community for American Expats in the Mascarene Islands

Hello to all Americans in the Mascarene Islands! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in the Mascarene Islands? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in the Mascarene Islands which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: there's more to these islands than simply their beaches. The idyllic archipelago is a exotic city known for not only being attractive tourist destinations but also for their colorful cultural festivals, stunning beaches, rich culinary experiences, hiking and scuba diving opportunities, and much more! With the bus services and limited road links, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in the areas away from the tourist spots, which are a short journey away from the Mascarene Islands’s center.

Although the Mascarene Islands has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the area. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in the Mascarene Islands, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
