Mauritius Weather In February
December to early April marks the warm season in Mauritius and the temperature rises to 29 degrees Celsius. And February usually experiences the highest temperature along with the chances of a few rain showers which cools down the atmosphere. During our trip, we witnessed a lot of rainfall but we were well-prepared for that as we had packed umbrellas, slippers, raincoats, and shorts. We did not let our morals down and indulged in exciting activities.
Adventure Activities We Indulged In Mauritius
As we already told you that we like to do adventurous activities, we made sure that our itinerary was full of thrilling activities. So, take a look at our experiences that we have also depicted through our photos.
1. Nepalese Bridge & Ziplining
Nepalese bridge crossing and ziplining are the two most enthralling and adventure activities in Mauritius for couples. Doing these two activities was the best part of our honeymoon trip. All other couples were scared to do these activities due to rainy weather but we did not let our hopes die and went for it even while it was raining. It was an absolute rejuvenating experience for both of us. Suspended on wooden platforms amidst lush greenery pumped up our energy and we safely crossed the 350 meters long bridge.
Next was the adventure of ziplining for 500 meters. I was super excited to see a panoramic view of Mauritius. This trail gives a sweeping view of animals in their natural habitat and I also got to see a range of flora and a glimpse of 23 colored earth too. We captured umpteen photographs for revisiting this place in our memories.
2. Underwater Sea Walk
This was one of the most sensational and adventure activities in Mauritius for couples that we did for the first time in our lives. Due to this activity were able to admire the marine life, coral reefs, and small fishes in their natural habitat. We wore a helmet that let us breathe underwater and went inside the water with a professional. We were truly mesmerized by the beauty of marine life and thus tried to capture this moment.
Kayaking was provided by our resort in Mauritius, Seaview Calodyne Resort, and no doubt it turned out to be an exhilarating experience for us. I was very excited about kayaking as I always wanted to do it but never got the chance. So, I headed for it and tried it in the crystal clear waters of Mauritius. If you are also planning a vacation to this place then you must opt for these adventure activities in Mauritius for couples.
