So, what actually makes Mauritius a romantic place for a honeymoon couple?
As what most travelers said, May is the best month to visit the island of Mauritius simply because of its weather during that time. In the month of May, Mauritius experiences a cooler, less humid weather in the summer and you can still enjoy soaking up the rays. Besides, if you’re traveling in May, you will get a cheaper price of almost everything there.
