Trip to SeychellesAll good. Strongly recommend to use their services. I will use in future for sure.
Trip to SeychellesHolidays Box and 7° South along with Travel Triangle made it the most memorable trip of our lives. Tanya from Holidays Box gets a special mention here for her amazing attitude and easy approachability. She was very accommodating of all my requests and was in touch through out our trip. Kudos!! Driving in Praslin by the beaches where there were mountains on one side and the clearest blue ocean on the other will always remain in my heart. The view from the top of the hill near the TV tower is unbelievable. Crystal water kayaks in la digue at the L'Union Estates gave us a VIP tour of the corals, mantas, Robinson Crusoe beach with breathtaking views of the shoreline. Cycling in La Digue with the mesmerizing ocean breeze hitting our bodies was one beautiful experience.

The weather in December is fairly cloudy at times and rainfall is pretty common due to the Northwest Monsoon. So, if you're looking for a sunny holiday in December, Seychelles weather is not ideal.
Seychelles is a politically stable country. The islands are located outside of cyclone belt so there is no urgent threat of thunderstorms. Avoid going outdoors or to remote islands when the rainfall is incessant.
Seychelles is a luxury holiday destination so, most accommodations are available in form of high-end resorts and beach resorts. However, guesthouses and lodges are available in Mahe and Praslin Islands.
