Mauritius in January
January is a very busy month for tourism in Mauritius, and flights and hotel prices are at their highest. January is Mauritius’s hottest and wettest month, with an average maximum temperature of 30°C/86°F.
Although it rains often, it mostly doesn’t rain for long, and the sun soon returns.
Highlights of the month/disadvantage + advantages
There is a chance of cyclones in January, but they don’t occur very often – typically, Mauritius gets hit by a cyclone twice a decade.
A wonderful event to experience in Mauritius is Chinese New Year, which takes place at the end of January or early February each year and is celebrated with fireworks, feasts, and festivities.
