Mauritius Honeymoon Tour Package


About Mauritius
Mauritius is a fascinating, world-in-one-island slice of paradise. It’s very name of conjures up
images of tropical luxury and stupendous extravagance. While in many destinations famed for
cobalt-blue seas, white sandy beaches and luxury hotels, you may eventually find yourself
wishing for something to do besides sunbathing and swimming, it’s often hard to know what to
do next in Mauritius. The island is loaded with historic sites, cultural diversity, geographic
variation and almost limitless activities to distract you from the daily grind of beach and pool. But
perhaps its single biggest asset is the relaxed charm of its warm and welcoming people.

Climate & When to Go
Mauritius enjoys a typically tropical climate with year-round heat, although the southeast trade
winds help it never to feel too muggy. The summer months are from December to April, when it
can nevertheless be extremely humid, and the winter, such as it is, runs from May to November,
and is cooler and drier.
The best months to visit Mauritius are May to early December. January and February, the peak
cyclone months, are best avoided by water-sports enthusiasts and divers. Cyclones rarely hit
Mauritius (although Rodrigues has suffered far more regularly than the mainland) but cyclones
way out at sea can bring days of squally rain.
Coastal temperatures range between 25°C and 33°C in summer and between 18°C and 24°C in
winter. On the plateau it will be some 5°C cooler. The highlands are also the wettest part of the
island – it can rain here at any time of year, and even when it’s not raining the area can be
cloaked in low-lying cloud.
When the winds are at their strongest in July and August it can be blustery on the east coast,
though the breeze brings welcome relief in summer.
Apart from the Christmas-New Year peak, Mauritius doesn’t really have high and low seasons.
The situation is more dependent on outside factors (such as the French school holidays, which
cause a big increase in demand and prices in August).

Money
The Mauritian unit of currency is the rupee (Rs), which is divided into 100 cents. There are coins
of 5, 20 and 50 cents, and Rs 1, Rs 5 and Rs 10. The banknote denominations are Rs 25, Rs
50, Rs 100, Rs 200, Rs 500, Rs 1000 and Rs 2000.
