As far as climatic conditions go, there is no bad time to visit Mauritius as the island has typical coastal tropical climate, which essentially means there are no extreme variations in the weather conditions throughout the year. Having said that, it is the winter (July to September) season, which is most popular with holiday makers getting hold of tickets on flights to the country. Humidity is low during the period. Summer months (November to February) are popular as well with Europeans booking tickets to Mauritius to get away from the biting cold back home. Cheap airfares are not easily available during the season and one must plan early to score cheap flights.
