What are the pros and cons of living in Ivory Coast?

Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in Ivory Coast responded:

"Expats and digital nomads living in Ivory Coast appreciate the country's vibrant culture, friendly people, and beautiful landscapes. They also enjoy the low cost of living, which allows them to stretch their budget further. On the other hand, they may find the infrastructure and public services lacking, as well as the lack of reliable internet access. Additionally, the language barrier can be a challenge for those who don't speak French," remarked one expat in Ivory Coast.
