Visitors would be advised to travel via the express buses, as standard buses can be extremely slow taking up to twice as long to reach destinations. There are over 1,800km of cemented roads in Mauritius, so hiring a rental car or motorbike can be the quickest and easiest way to discover the isle. Hire prices aren’t cheap, but can generally be negotiated if you want a vehicle for a week or more. Taxi‘s with friendly drivers are ample and one of the best ways to get out and experience all the isle has to offer. Vehicles are gratified by law to have a meter, even though they are rarely used, so be prepared to bargain a price before setting off.
