I’ve been to Mauritius to escape the English winter, this was some years ago, when there were winters. We went in March, and spent a fortune. One of my female employees went to Cyprus at the same time. She came home with an incredible tan, and we didn’t because there was little sun in Mauritius, because we were in the area of influence of a tropical depression which sat offshore during our entire stay!!
It was a steep learning curve, because we assumed the best time to go to Mauritius was in our European winter, and now I know this to be wrong. The weather in Mauritius in January February or March, can be beautiful, but now I know that there is a serious risk of tropical cyclones, and you can have ten days of foul weather!!
The other months to avoid are July and August, because again the weather is often very unreliable. Many people don’t realise that Mauritius being south of the equator , means that August is the middle of the winter, so temperatures can be lower than at home in the UK. I feel for many honeymoon couples who have booked one of the many delux hotels in Mauritius, only to discover it isn’t blue sky and tropical temperatures.

If you want discount air fares to Mauritius, and steeply discounted hotel deals, then you need to look outside of the time of year discussed so far, that is quite obvious. The best months to go are April, May, October, and November.
Out of all of these months, May stands out as the best month, when the weather is not so wet and unpredictable, yet it is still warm enough at 29 degrees centigrade. Most importantly that is the month of the big tempting discounts from discounted air line tickets to amazing hotel deals.
Choose May to take a vacation in Mauritius and save money!!
