I'll be on my honeymoon trip to Mauritius for 9 days. I've booked Tarisa Resort hotel (in Trou aux Biches) on half board basis. I need an estimate for 9 days lunch for 2 people in a decent hotel. The honeymoon package also includes 3-day tours. Apart from those, we will be taking 1 or 2 optional paid tours (visit to an island and watersport maybe). How much money in Mauritian Rupees should I carry? Please advise.
I wanted to get an idea on the price of water sports activities in Mauritius. The quotations given by my honeymoon planner are pretty high and wanted to know the right prices. If anyone has been there recently and can share their experience, it is highly appreciated.
Hi All! We are going on our honeymoon to Mauritius (Le Preskil Beach Resort) from South Africa, has anyone been there before, if so, how was it? Second question, we are going on a half board basis, how much spending money should be fine for the both of us per day? Many thanks!

I plan to travel to Mauritius later this year. The idea is to rent a Kayak Sit-On-Top and to paddle around for 2 weeks, sleeping on beaches with my jungle hammock. Any of you guys know a place where I can rent a good kayak for more than a day and not too expensive? Another thing, since I wanna sleep on beaches, is mosquitos, gnats and other blood suckers a big issue in Mauritius? Thanks.
Hello: My wife and I are from California and are looking to travel to Mauritius over the winter break. We were hoping to come in early to mid January 2013 for about 7-10 days but are having second thoughts after reading online about the possibility of cyclones hitting the island around this time. I would like to know from folks about how high the risk of a cyclone is this time of year? How often do they hit? Even if there is no cyclone, does it tend to rain a lot this time of year? Also, does the weather vary depending on which side of the island you stay? Since we are going to be traveling clear around to the other side of the world, the last thing we would want to have happen is for us to run into severe weather while we are there! Any insights folks can provide would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
Appreciate information on the type of plugs used in Mauritius. Thank you!

I want to take my honeymoon in Mauritius and wanted some advice. Mostly me and my wife are both interested in Scenic and natural beauty with some outdoor activities, not too interested in beaches. I am really interested in at least one of these: 1. Helicopter Ride 2. Aeroplane 3. Cruise 4. Snorkling I have a budget of3500 (I will be paying air travel separately) and the trip can last around 10 days. Are there any good tour agents that we can sign up with. Any advise will be most welcome.
Some years ago we stayed at the Residence and loved it but would have been even more delighted if we had been able to walk or cycle to a local village for some beers and street food or local cafe and local life. Has anything changed since we came about 5 years ago? Also, in a review of the Constance Le Prince Maurice, it was mentioned that you could cycle to a local village for the street food. So, which would be better for local colour do you think?
Hi I am booking accommodation and flights for Mauritius for my honeymoon, but travel agent is also offering 3 day tour at additional cost! is it worth booking tour beforehand or should I go there and book it by myself. Which will be cheaper? The tour they are offering is for 3 full days to South and North Island ( via coach) and Ile Aux Cerfs (via boat). Is it worth it for around360 tour to these places for 2 people. Please provide suggestions THanks

Kindly recommend some good options and what can I expect in terms of rates. Thanks a lot :)
