Mauritius Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 58%, Mauritius represents what most of us think of when the catchphrase "tropic paradise" is mentioned. If white sand beaches, surrounded by lazy palms, are your ideal destination, then this place will answer all of your prayers. Beaches such as St-Géran and Ile aux Cerfs continually show up on the lists of the world's best beaches and provide the perfect backdrop for a classic island holiday. However, even the most sloth-like vacationer will eventually rouse themselves and Mauritius has the perfect answer in Black River Gorges National Park, where you can hike through the thick tropical rainforests of the island's interior. To top it all off you can board a plane - to gain unequaled views over the Pacific - and then hurl yourself out in a skydive that will imprint the ocean views on your retinas for all eternity. And just in case you want to stimulate your mind, along with your senses, visit Aapravasi Ghat, an immigration depot that was the epicenter of one of the greatest migrations in history. Many PlanetHoppers! shy away from visiting the same place twice, but in the case of Mauritius, you'll be coming back again and again.
