Has anyone travelled in Mauritius renting rooms from locals? Is it common, resp. are there guest houses with a good standard and what are the average prices for a room with bathroom? I want to travel around freely and stay where I like it and not pre-book a hotel. What about the beaches, are all beaches accessible to the public or are the beaches from the big hotels private? What about eating costs at places where locals commonly eat?
Has anyone done any island hoping to Zansibar and islands around?Which months is advisable (not rainy all the time and no hurricane).
thank you for your reply-
