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.
Greetings. We are on our way to Mauritius in a few weeks time. We booked an al inclusive package via Beachomber Tours al the Le Victoria Hotel. What can we expect? What do we have to "look out" for? Any suggestions? Thanks, Jaco
I am looking for a beautiful villa/hotel for 2 nights in July for 6 of us friends. What is the best part to stay at that time of the year, and what are some good reasonable hotels. Our budget is between $400 - $500 a night for all of us.
is there an ATM at the International airport so that i can withdrw money before I go to the HOTEL.
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.

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.

Arriving in Port Louis via cruise liner in December 2012 for a few days, and just want to hang around at the beach and do some water activities. Any tips on getting from and back to the ship to Town and what transport to use and what beach to go to?
Hi all, I will be visiting Mauritius in the last 2 weeks of December and am wondering what activity options I have as a solo traveller. I will be staying with a friend(in Blue Bay) who will be working in the day and will have a couple of other friends join me at a later time, but would be nice to make a few connections/friends(on here) before I visit. Besides the nightlife, I enjoy scuba-diving, horse-back riding, volunteering/charity work, wine/dine, etc. Anyone with genuine recommendations or would like to hang out on the beach with me; I look forward to hearing from you :-). Thanks, V.
hi, i am thinking of having a holiday in mauritius dec 2012 for two weeks. i haven't decided which part to go to yet but at the minute i am favouring the north coast. my question is it somewhere that people would head to on there own? i am going to be travelling on my lonesome and am a bit concerned as to whether i would enjoy it as i get the impression that most there will be couples or honeymooners. i am looking at doing it all inclusive and will probably spend most of my time beside the resort pool or on the beach and doing a few of the tours as well. any advice greatly appreciated
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!

We're looking to spend 6/7 in Mauritius, and would like to know the better parts of town, or which town to live in. We do not want to go for a beach holiday, but more a get-to-know-the country and the people-type of stay. We lived overseas with a big US bank for years and are used to exploring, networking, entertaining and getting to know the country. We have done some research, but cannot quite figure out where we should situate ourselves for a 1/2 year rental.

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.
