    • Hike from cilaos to Piton des neiges

      Reunion Nov 11, 2014 at 1:03 AM

      we have booked a trip to Reunion next year in June. Planned to do hike fron Cilaos to Piton des neiges staying at Gite refuge de la caverne Dufour overnight then think 1 1/2 hour to summit before descending.

      Understand loose rocks underfoot in places. I am walking with a lady who is scared of heights and exposure ie steep drop off side of narrow path.
      Just wondered if you could give me some idea of the amount of exposure involved if any?
      Do you know of a good guide who could walk with us ? Does anyone have a contact number for Nico Cyprien?

      I'm considering going on to Reunion Island from Mauritius, for 4 nights in early June, and would appreciate your kind advice on the following:-

      3) Transfer from airport to accommodation - how do I get there?
      4) Things you would recommend I do? Moderate activity.
      5) Can I get by with a minimum of basic French and will locals speak to me in English if I ask (in French) if they can speak English ?
      6) Any local VTer I could meet?
      7) Any other advice you deem useful to a solo female traveler.

      Reunion vacation with an 8-year old

      Reunion May 18, 2009 at 12:45 PM

      We were thinking about visiting Reunion in July with our 8-year old daughter and have a few questions:

      1. Is the ocean warm enough at that time of year for us to go in the water? Is there a significant difference in water temperature and currents between the different sides of the island?

      2. We plan to rent a car so that we can drive around the island and do some sightseeing. Can you get to the volcanos by car? We love to hike, but realize that our daughter's legs will only last so long hiking hilly terrain.

      3. Where is the best part of the island to use as a base for our stay if we want to have a mix of beach and sightseeing?

      4. We are considering Mauritius and the Seychelles as alternative destinations. It seems to us that Reunion has the best mix of beach and scenery of the three, but we would love to hear other people's opinions. We can speak and understand both French and English.

    • Travelling from Reunion to Mauritius by sea.

      Reunion Nov 10, 2007 at 7:59 AM

      Hi. My fiance and I are planning to visit Reunion on our honeymoon this December - we were thinking of spending about 7 day & 8 nights there and were thinking of going on to Mauritius for a few days before getting back to Reunion & then heading back to India. We were wondering if anyone could give us some information on how convenient it is to travel from Reunion to Mauritius by Sea - otherwise if there is any alternative way of doing the trip, we would like to know so that we can plan our tickets accordingly. We would preferably want to do this trip in a cost effective manner as we are already spending a lot of money on the trip hence if anyone can give us an idea of the fares as well it would help us plan better. Looking forward to hearing back with a positive response soon.

      Cheers,

      going to Reunion... is beginning of December a good time?

      Reunion Oct 19, 2007 at 1:55 AM

      My best friend and I are planning a holiday from 1 to 9 of December, to escape somewhere warm, and one option we are weighing is Reunion.

      My best friend and I are planning a holiday from 1 to 9 of December, to escape somewhere warm, and one option we are weighing is Reunion.

      First, yet another boring weather question! (soooorry!). I know hat no one really knows about weather, but I read conflicting info. Some places say there are heavy rains and cyclones from December to March. Provided we would be there at the beginning of the rainy season, maybe is not so bad?? Or we should expect rains all the time? (so we'll change planes and visit another time)

      On the other hand, our interests are both hiking and snorkeling. We know Reunion may be "the" place for hiking. But my friend keeps saying there are no beaches in Reunion worth it. I find difficult to believe that an island may have no beaches! (well, I understand these may be not so wonderful as Mauritius or Seychelles, but...I saw there are a few beaches) Is there any good place for snorkeling??

      Last but not least, anyone knows where we can rent a sailing boat for a day?

      Thanks!!

      Hi to all! We will be arriving in Reunion Island by cruiseship for just one day on Thursday December 9 from about 9:00m to 4:00pm. We would like a "private" English-speaking tour guide w/car for the day for transport from and to our ship and to sightsee, enjoy lunch and soak up the atmosphere. Do you know of a guide or can you direct us to one? Do we need a guide? What are some must-see things to do and see in our very short time? All help is greatly appreciated. Thanks much, Bob and Fran
