Summary: The pros of living in Fiji include its stunning natural beauty, with white sand beaches, lush rainforests, and crystal clear waters. The people of Fiji are also incredibly friendly and welcoming, making it a great place to make new friends. Additionally, the cost of living in Fiji is relatively low, making it an affordable place to live. The cons of living in Fiji include the fact that it is a small island nation, so there are limited job opportunities and career prospects. Additionally, the infrastructure is not as developed as in other countries, so access to certain services and amenities may be limited. Finally, the tropical climate can be quite humid and hot, which may not be suitable for everyone.
