Mauritius is an island country in eastern Africa located in the southern part of the Indian Ocean.

Visitors to the country often enjoy choosing hotels in Mauritius that include a high level of service.

Visitors to the country can partake in birdwatching and cycle through the jungles and mountains. World-class diving and snorkeling activities are also offered. Those looking for a more relaxing experience can walk through the beautiful botanical gardens and colonial era plantations. In addition, the local cuisine is not to be missed.

Port Louis, the capital of Mauritius and the country’s largest city and seaport, is a must-see for tourists. The bustling streets, interwoven multiethnic areas, and some of the most well-preserved colonial buildings are the greatest pleasures of exploring this city. Visitors can enjoy a relaxing time at the open-air cafe near the port in the afternoon; stroll through the harbor trail at night and enjoy the sea breeze and the night view. There’s also an opportunity to visit the Central Market and try bargaining with the shopkeepers. The southwestern part of Mauritius is almost completely covered by forests.
