A multicultural melting pot of a city, the Mauritian capital of Port Louis--or simply "Louis," as it's affectionately known--represents the most populous area of Mauritius.
Step out of Port Louis with an excursion to La Vanille Nature Park in Riviere des Anguilles--about 58 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: admire the natural beauty at SSR Botanic Garden, get engrossed in the history at Blue Penny Museum, steep yourself in history at Citadel, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Louis Cathedral.

Before you visit Port Louis, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

You can do a combination of car and bus from Chamarel to Port Louis in an hour. Alternatively, you can drive. In December in Port Louis, expect temperatures between 35°C during the day and 27°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
