Hi Tillie,

I’ve been living out here in Lagos for almost 15 years. Here are my thoughts…

PROS

  • people are really friendly
  • lovely weather – summer or winter
  • spectacular beaches
  • Good transport network and traffic isn’t too bad at busiest times
  • Generally much more affortable compared to the UK
  • Short flights between the UK and Portugal. Flight prices are’nt too bad either

CONS

  • Driving can be a bit dangerous
  • Property prices had remained steady so a bit more expensive than Spain
  • Compared to the UK a much slower pace to life

I hope this helps in some way with your decision.
