When is the best time to travel in Mauritius?

Jump to last reply

I have a plan to Mauritius for two weeks from mid of Sept to early of Oct.
Is that period good for snorkelling and mountain trekking?
How is the living standard there?
Pls kindly advise asap. Thanks!

    Hi,

    We stayed in Mauritius for twee weeks in June 97. June was the end of their summer, but the weather was just fine. Not too hot nor humid. I guess September and October are like that too.

    The hotel we stayed in was beautiful. Private beach, reef protected bay, thus lots of snorkelling.

    We also hired a jeep for a few days and the roads are good, however, the further inland you go, the signs get less, so did we get lost!

    As far as the development of the island, we were quite surprised by the number of (relatively) new cars, foreign banks and advertisements for cellular phones! Their main export is sugar, the island is covered in sugarcane fields.

    The people are very friendly and there is a real 'melt-pot' of cultures and religions. Because of the laid-back atmosphere, people seem to live in peace with one another, which is lovely. Most of them speak good or some English (everyone in the hotels does), however, if you know some French it might be useful, since the island is rather French-orientated.

    Before you go, buy the Lonely Planet Guide for Mauritius, Seyshelles and Reunion, which is very helpful. Especially if you want to see and do more on the island than just hanging out on the beach.

    Have a wonderful time.
