Full Disclosure:
This trip was supported by Beachcomber Hotels & Resorts as well as the Mauritian Tourism Promotion Agency. As part of our collaboration, we were lucky enough to experience a complimentary stay at all three Beachcomber Resorts, whereas MTPA paid for several of our excursions, i.e. the helicopter flight. All other expenses, i.e. domestic flights, car rental, etc., were paid by ourselves. As usual, all opinions are our own.
