Healthcare in Mauritius
The healthcare facilities in Mauritius can vary, but are generally in pretty good condition. There are public and private healthcare centres, but a lot of tourists choose to see private doctors at private hospitals, which can be costly. You should buy adequate travel insurance including any pre-existing medical conditions before you travel, so you can rest assured knowing you’re covered in case anything happens while abroad.
It’s also important to remember to speak to your GP at least four to six weeks before you travel, to check whether there are any vaccinations, or any other preventatives needed.
