Mauritius Things to Do: 444 reviews and 1,001 photos
Port Louis, the capital of Mauritius is the largest city in the country. Bordering the Indian Ocean, it's also the main port.
Take a waking tour of Port Louis. Visit the Postal Museum, the Photo Museum, the Blue Penny Museum, and the National Museum of History, whose star attraction is of course, the dodo. . (There are no complete specimens of the dodo anywhere, only fragments and bones and “re-creations”. Dodos lived undisturbed in Mauritius until Portuguese sailors arrived and feasted on the birds (who were unable to fly). Eventually the dodos were the first species to become extinct.)
Visit churches (St. James) and see the government buildings. Loved the colonial (and colorful) architecture.
Have lunch at a restaurant on the Caudan waterfront. Shop at the mall or the markets and visit the Casino. End the day watching a Hindi movie (subtitled) and having dinner along the waterfront.
You can easily spend hours exploring the area.
