Destination known for its exoticism, associated with Honeymoon trips and the luxury of fine sand beaches and the exuberant vegetation of the Indian Ocean. The island's mountainous interior includes the Black River Gorges National Park, with tropical forests, waterfalls, hiking trails, and wildlife such as flying foxes. The capital Port Louis has sites such as the Champs de Mars racecourse, the Eureka estate house and the 18th-century Botanical Garden of Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam.Mauritius was uninhabited until the end of the 16th century. Before, it was already known by the Arab sailors first and then the Portuguese. But it was the Dutch in 1598 who established the first stable settlement. Abandoned by the Dutch in 1710 and reoccupied this time by the crown of France in 1715, Mauritius will become an important commercial enclave and stopover between India and Europe. This geostrategic importance will cause Great Britain to occupy it after the victory over Napoleon in 1814. In 1978, after 150 years of British presence, Mauritius became an independent country.The vegetation is lush; the abrupt relief due to its volcanic geology; the coast, full of beaches and geographical features; the dreamy tropical climate with stable temperatures that make it possible to visit practically all year round. All this has made Mauritius one of the most sophisticated and exclusive destinations in the world. It shares with the Bermuda Islands, Maldives and Seychelles an aura of luxury and quality that, without a doubt, is fulfilled and true.In addition to a destination for newlyweds and for those seeking exclusivity and luxury, Isla Mauritius is a destination of nature, active tourism, culture and traditions, music, sports, gastronomy and well-being. All on a small island that combines influences from Africa, the Middle East, India, China and Europe. It is also a perfect destination to go on vacation at any time of the year.
