Exploring the History of Sugar
Some might say that rum is Mauritius' lifeblood. But where does rum come from? Sugar. And sugar manufacturing is a huge part of Mauritian history and culture. Despite the somewhat cheesy name, L'Aventure du Sucre offers a lot more than just a run-down on sugar production. Give yourself ample time to explore the on-site museum, which not only talks about the production of sugar (yesterday and today), but how that industry intersects with the island's diverse history. Your sweet tooth is sure to be sated at the end of the tour, when you can taste multiple varieties of unrefined sugars—and perhaps buy some to take back home with you.
