Mauritius was thrilled to learn about their ranking in the top three, expressed Hon. Steven Obeegadoo, Deputy Prime Minister of the island: ‘’ We’re delighted that Mauritius has been recognised by Lonely Planet as a must-visit destination for 2022. Mauritius has been consistently celebrated in recent years for developing sustainable activities and practices for incoming tourists. From our multitude of green zones, including forests, parks and nature reserves, to our offering of eco-friendly activities such as electric biking and the banning of single-use plastics, Mauritius is an exemplary case of eco-tourism in action.’’
Since Mauritius has been fully reopening its borders, this is extraordinary news for the island which had to shut down the tourism industry which was a very important part of the island’s economy.
