Budget trip to Mauritius Accommodation, Transportation, Things to Do

A lot of people said this but Mauritius is a honeymoon destination. No. I and my best friend Rachita, we both went to Mauritius, after leaving the job Since we left the job at the same time our budget was so much, so little. So we had spent 15 days, only 15 thousand in Mauritius. I am going to tell you how in this Blog & video

First let me give you some additional information on flights and visa. So nowadays, I have pre booking flights on wego. Wego is an amazing website to find cheap flights. So you can go here and fill your destination and by aggregating, it gives details of all the flights given on the websites and it picks out the cheapest option for you Which is really amazing If you are booking a flight from Wego, in advance, then you can get a very cheap ticket Apart from that you can change the currencies, see when are public holidays, change the language and it is just so efficient to search for cheap flight on Wego.

So how efficiently and how well in advance you book a flight and on which date you will book matters a lot to find a cheap flight Along with that you just add 15,000 and this is your budget for Mauritius. Coming to visa – Indians do not need a visa. We do not need a visa. Visa has no cost. It’s free. There you just have to fill a form and a health declaration form also has to be filled together. Yes, you read that right, we did not spend a single penny on accommodation. Couch surfing is very common in destinations like Mauritius. If you go anywhere, you will find locals. So you go to couchsurfing.com. You create a profile then you will find locals from that particular destination who are willing to host travelers backpackers like us. You can decide this by looking at their ratings, if they are trustworthy or not. Other travelers have reviewed them.

Then your host is reviewing you as a traveler. You get to know a lot about the culture, about the people, about the places, some hidden places and they are super super sweet . Ladies and gentleman, this is your captain speaking. Haa.. haa… It is basically a community of travelers who help each other. There are two very common modes of transportation by which you can travel budget friendly in Mauritius. One is taking local transportation and the second is hiring a scooter. There is a place in Mauritius called Cure pipe, from where buses leave for every destination. It is basically a center point. From this website, you can get all the details about the bus, timings, and as you all know that buses are not that costly as well. If you want to roam around on your own, then you can rent a scooty. Take care of one thing before renting. Check by moving the scooty around a bit. Food! I am a vegetarian. You will find a decent vegetarian meal between 500 and 700. But since we were couch surfing, we had the luxury to cook our own food. So we bought a lot of food products in bulk from the mall. Had bought food. So it made our life so much easier and we have saved so much. So what you can do is – try local cuisines at the time of dinner or breakfast. And then you can have cooked meals for the remaining time. All the adventurous activities – this is my favorite part. So we did snorkeling, we did dolphin tour, we did all the hikes. So first let’s talk about water activities. We had a dolphin tour and we had taken a package that included snorkeling. The package cost was 2600. We saw dolphins but since we are not very good swimmers, we could not jump inside the water.

But many foreigners were jumping inside the water. It is an experience in itself to see dolphins. The second activity is the seven-colored earth. It is also called Chamarel, where you will see 7 types of land. This is naturally formed. You only have to pay the entry fees and it’s very amazing. All the other activities that we did in Mauritius were free. For example, going to Flick and flack beach. Here we saw a sunset Then watching wind surfing and kite surfing. We saw a lot waterfalls. We did a lot of hikes. So much freeness, this Mauritius offers. It is crazy! Actually, I am going to release another vlog on all the activities that we did, 15 days itinerary In it, you will know about all the waterfalls and hikes we did. Download offline maps for easier navigations.

It will also save your data pack and you will be very easy to travel, especially on hikes. When you are buying Souvenir in the local market, make sure that you bargain because they obviously charge a little bit more from tourists. So up your bargaining skills at that time. Get travel insurance for sure. It will help you if your flight has been canceled or during the theft. When you are booking your package for snorkeling or for a dolphin tour, then ensure to ask from as many places as possible. Compare the cost and then book a package. When going on a hike ensure that you are taking your lunch with you The hike is generally for a day, however, your lunch might get skipped in the process and you will not find any food shops on the way.
