What are the pros and cons of living in Cyprus?

Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in Cyprus responded:

"Expats and digital nomads often appreciate the warm climate and relaxed lifestyle that Cyprus has to offer. The cost of living is also relatively low, making it an attractive destination for those looking to stretch their budget. Additionally, the country is known for its friendly locals and welcoming atmosphere. On the other hand, some expats and digital nomads may find the lack of public transportation and infrastructure to be a challenge. Additionally, the language barrier can be a challenge for those who don't speak Greek," explained one expat in Cyprus.

"Cypriots are terrible drivers so you have to drive very defensively. But they are very kind and friendly people," said one expat in Frenaros.
