Why is Mauritius special
Mauritius is a small island located in the Indian Ocean, with postcard beaches and green mountains in its interior that captivate from the first moment.
A vacation in Mauritius can be for many types of travelers, from those who will spend part or their entire honeymoon in one of the beautiful and comfortable hotels that are on its coasts, to families who want to enjoy a unique stay in the island, even those who want to do many activities in its interior or on its seabed.
The island has a fascinating history, descendants of European, African, Indian and Chinese immigrants make up the majority of the population and each of them has left their mark on the island. There are 2 main languages, Creole and French, although being a first-rate tourist destination, it is also normal to find many people who speak English.
Inside you can find sugar plantations, beautiful Hindu temples or dine savoring a cuisine inspired by a melting pot of culinary traditions.
The variety of accommodations is infinite, from small boutique-style hotels to relatively large hotels by number of rooms, but as they are camouflaged in beaches full of vegetation, they do not seem so big. Mauritius has accommodations for all types of travelers.
