Tired of the Daily Grind? Head to Mauritius Island!


We all know what it’s like to wake up, shower, go to work, come home, go to sleep, and do it all again the next day. Repeat, repeat, and repeat. The drudgery of daily life can take its toll on your health, both physically and emotionally. You deserve really nice break away from it all—one that does not simply involve a pint of ice cream and prime time television. A vacation in Mauritius can help you take your mind off of the stress in your life, give you a chance to reconnect with your spouse, and rejuvenate your spirit.

Replenish the Spark
Nothing replenishes the spark in your marriage like time away from laundry, dirty dishes, and screaming kids. Sometimes a weekend getaway is not enough. Take a week or two to really explore this island and get to know each other again. There is plenty to do in Mauritius, so you won’t get bored, and you’ll appreciate the long hours to do nothing but talk. Whether you’re dipping your toes in the infinity pool at your luxury resort, kayaking in a blue lagoon, or careening down a zipline above the tree canopy, you’ll return home with memories of the two of you in a special place in your heart.

Hike to a waterfall and stand underneath the cool cascade that pounds to the same rhythm as your heart. Open your eyes underwater as you float through a rainbow of sea life. Close your eyes as you idle on your lounge chair and listen to the rustling palms above your head. Savor the tropical taste of the Mauritian cuisine as you dine in the cool sea breezes.

Going on an adventure together can solidify your marriage bond and revive your trust in each other. When you have to work together to cross a foot bridge high in the treetops or hold each other’s hands as you swing across a zipline, you will remember how important it is to support each other in a marriage.

Outdoor activities that make your pulse race a little faster are popular in Mauritius. Treetop obstacle courses take you above the spectacular landscape through a series of swings, bridges, and ropes. ATV tours let you race through the hills under the lush foliage and through the colorful flowers of the island. Horseback riding tours are a romantic way to finish off a relaxing day. Ride through the mountains and beaches and finish it off with a picnic on the sand next to a private lagoon.

Of course, the sea surrounds the island, beckoning you with its crystal depths and colorful fish. You can take a romantic cruise to a secluded island, spending the day snorkeling or scuba diving before retreating to a private villa. If you’re still in adventure mode, go deep-sea fishing for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Many resorts let you rent kayaks for free. Take a double kayak through the lagoons to a secret beach, where you can lay on the sand, just the two of you.

Day-to-day worries about family, finances, and work can take their toll on your health, your marriage, and your quality of life. It has been shown that after a vacation, you return with a more positive outlook, which can help you enjoy your daily routine and truly live. After doing the same thing every day, it’s important to get a new perspective. Taking a vacation to an unspoiled, relaxing vacation destination like Mauritius can change your life forever.
