Without further wait, let’s go through the things that’ll help you make a perfect plan for the Mauritius trip.
When to travel to Mauritius from India?
Mauritius is a tourist hotspot year-round thanks to its tropical weather. However, the best time to visit Mauritius is between May and October as it’s less humid. The summer and rainy season lie between November and April, with February being the hottest. July and August are the coldest months when you won’t even be needing ACs. Most tourists prefer visiting during the summers when watersports are booming and they can relax on the lively beaches.
But, we Indians want to travel to a destination, where we don’t have to face the extreme heat, right? Mauritius is perfect because our summers and Mauritius’ winters occur at the same time. A trip in June/July or August would not only turn out to be great weather-wise but economically too. The winters in Mauritius comparatively attract lesser tourists and everything runs on discounted prices. If you’re planning to visit with the “Mrs”, winters will be the ideal time as it’s less crowded and you’ll get more privacy.
Visas and passports are mandatory for international trips and we stress too much over them. Thankfully Mauritius grants Visa on arrival for Indians, so you don’t have too much to worry about on that end. However, make sure that your passport is valid for at least 6 months from the date of arrival in Mauritius. Take note of all the other mandates like hotel bookings, return flights, etc. from their official site and carry the documents accordingly.
How to handle bookings and returns?
Book your flights from Mumbai if possible, most of the other airports have connecting flights only. The distance between Mumbai and Mauritius is approximately 4690 km and it’ll take just 6 hours to reach there in a direct flight. You can also travel to Mauritius on a ship if you’ve got the time and budget. Now, that you know how you can reach there let’s get to the booking part.
Money saved, is money earned, right? So make sure that you book flights at least 3-4 months before the trip month. Early booking will get your tickets at discounted prices and you can even reschedule in case of emergencies. We highly advise you to book everything that can be, like a hotel, tour, activity, etc. If you pre-book everything, you’ll have a plan that you can stick to and you don’t have to waste time deciding your itinerary every day.

Local transportation in Mauritius and dinner date?
Local transportation is important when you step out for sightseeing. Thankfully, local transportation in Mauritius has great connectivity and is easily available. If you want to experience the culture, meet the locals and travel local style you can take the bus. If you want a more private option, plan to travel around on rented bikes. Make sure to drive safely and take taxis when you’ve had a little too much after those late-night parties.
Although every moment on the honeymoon is romantic, that special dinner date has its own charm. For that special dinner, suit up and rent a luxury car to travel to the dinner destination (a speed boat or a beach would be perfect). You can add in some music and wine to seize the moment.
How to plan sightseeing and other activities?
Choosing between places to visit and places to skip can be daunting.
