Top 5 Travel Tips for your visit to Mauritius – Time to soak in the good vibrations

Mauritius has long been at the top among some of the best places to visit for those looking for unmatchable island experiences. With plenty of reefs, beaches and even mountains for travellers to explore and relax among, the island has something for everyone.
Time to get planning your next big getaway!


Get your documents in order

If you are looking to simply jump on a plane right now, it is best to hold your horses. To plan a trip to Mauritius will require a little bit more work than that. This process involves ensuring that your passport has at minimum 6 months from the date of departure. It is also necessitating that you are also able to show that you have roughly USD 600 available with you during your travels.
Aside from the above, the next step would be to get your vaccinations in order. The process requires you to be able to show a WHO card that has a yellow fever vaccination if the country you are visiting has endemic cases of this disease.
Additionally, save a lot of time through customs by ensuring that you are only carrying the permitted amount of tobacco products.


Meeting your healthcare requirements

Being an island nation, there is a lot to be kept in mind to ensure you have a trouble-free experience in terms of your health. This means that you are travelling with an updated insurance policy in case of an emergency as well as travel health insurance.
It is also heavily recommended to keep some mosquito repellent handy as the nearby wilderness tends to make it difficult to avoid some unpleasant mosquito experiences.
Please also be careful when wading out into the waters as it is quite likely that you may get stung by a stonefish. These stings can become fatal so it is better to keep the antivenom available near you.


Getting around Mauritius

If you are staying at The Residence Mauritius or any of the other best resorts in Mauritius then there is a good chance that you may be able to coordinate much of your travels with the assistance of the in-house staff.
However, when travelling it is important to bring a guide with you to help you make your way through each place you visit!


Dive into the food

With a plethora of cultural influences infused into the cuisine of Mauritius, you are likely to find an array of street food that varies from Chinese fried noodles to spicy curries! With plenty of variety, you are going to be in for a real treat. Even vegetarians are going to be having a blast with plenty of dishes to keep them happy.


Spend some time shopping

If you are winding down your little adventure it may be the time to dip away to some of the local markets and let the shopkeepers pique your interest with the range of local souvenirs, spices and other good that can be acquired here!
