The official language of Mauritius is English. A large number of people can therefore understand and speak it. The main language of the island however is Creole which is based on French. In addition the different ethnic groups speak such languages as Chinese and Hindi.
They use the Mauritian rupee. Currency rate is EURO 1.00 = 42.00 rupees.
