Mauritius has a tropical climate that can be broadly divided into two seasons. From November to April, it is summer with average temperatures ranging from 22 to 27 degrees Celsius. From May to October, it is Autumn with average temperatures between 19 and 24 degrees Celsius. The climate in Mauritius is warm throughout the year!


Mauritius experiences natural disasters primarily in the form of cyclones, with most occurring between December and April. However, cyclones in Mauritius typically move in and out relatively quickly.


Mauritius uses the Mauritian Rupee (MUR) as its currency. It is advisable to bring US Dollars or Euros to exchange at the airport in Mauritius. As for how much to exchange, if your hotel accommodations are already prepaid, you may only need cash for shopping or dining out. Many places now accept credit cards. However, there are still some places that only accept cash, such as local markets, street vendors, and taxis. If your itinerary in Mauritius is not pre-planned and you decide on activities once you’re there, it’s a good idea to have some cash on hand, as some activity providers and transportation services may only accept cash payments.

The primary languages in Mauritius are English, French, and the local Creole language. English is widely spoken and understood, although some locals may speak it with a French or Creole accent, so it’s still quite accessible for most English speakers.

The food quality in hotels is typically well-maintained. However, street vendors may not always adhere to the same hygiene standards. Whether or not you’ll have dietary adjustments largely depends on your individual tolerance. If you have a sensitive stomach, it’s advisable to avoid street food. As for getting used to the food, Mauritius offers a wide variety of cuisines. Hotels often feature different themed dishes daily, and you can find rice and noodles regularly. It is often heard that people usually gain weight from indulging in the diverse and delicious options available, not the contrary.

No, you don’t need to. Mauritius, although located near Africa, is not in an endemic region, so vaccinations before or after your visit are not required.
