As a tour guide, a lot of people have requested to know what exactly they need to have put in place for their family tour to Mauritius. In response to these queries, I have put together this small post to walk you through of what are needed for your Mauritius Tour Package for Family. The information put together here will help you on how to plan your stay, places to visit, things to see, what you should wear etc. It’s important for people who have never been to vacation on this island before to be well educated before embarking on their trip.
How To Plan Your Best Vacation Tour In Mauritius With Your Family?
Firstly, you need to decide how many days you want to spend on the island. Your trip should be based on how many days you are staying and what activities you intend to take part in with your family. Also note that unlike other tourist destinations there are no airport transfers offered in Mauritius, hence you might want to consider deciding on how to visit other parts of the island.
If you are going to be touring round the capital Port Louis, then you have nothing to worry about as you can readily get transportation and accommodation. When it comes to accommodation, the Mauritius has a lot to offer and there are a lot of options. Most of the hotels in the island, offers excellent services with modern facilities. If you are traveling with children or families, you have the choice of getting a heavily discounted guest house or tourist lodges close to the beach.
There are also many small resorts that offer all-inclusive services, this all-inclusive package is what I always recommend for tourists traveling with families. What this package entails is that you will not have to pay for your food, drink or activities during your stay since it is already included in your initial payment.
As I mentioned earlier, there are no airport transfers offered in Mauritius. Hence, it is important you remember to make all the necessary hotel and transport bookings in advance before your arrival and departure.
The third and probably the most important option about your trip is the choice of what you will see during your vacation. The island has an amazing natural beauty, with crystal clear water, white sandy beaches, forests and enormous mountains. You can go snorkeling or diving in the ocean, however, always ensure a guide is there just in case you need help.
Some of the other activities you may want to explore during your trip to Mauritius includes visiting some of the nature reserve, going to the spa, horseback riding, water skiing, go cliff diving, and dinning in some of the cozy restaurants.
As far as the weather is concerned, the best time to visit Mauritius is from November to April when you get more tropical sun that is not too hot. The winters are warm and humid with rainfall, while the summers are hot and dry. However, the island’s nature can be enjoyed all year round.
What to Wear in Mauritius?
Finally, you need to consider what you are bringing with you. Mauritius is a tropical place so the temperature is usually between 25 and 35 degrees Celsius. The sea temperature varies from 27 to 29 degrees Celsius. Therefore, you might consider bringing a few layers of clothes with you, in case it’s too hot one day and too cold the next.
Nevertheless, it’s important that you carry along sunscreen cream, a pair of dark sunglasses, a pair of light shoes for beach walk, bug spray and insect repellent on your trip to Mauritius. These items help prevent you from getting an easy burn and warding away annoying beach insects especially at night.
