The kids want to spend all day at the beach or pool. You want to use Mauritius' impeccable weather to roam the island. But rain does and will happen. And a rainy morning is a great excuse to visit the small yet lovely Mauritius Aquarium.
The aquarium boasts more than 100 species of animals, many local to the Mauritian waters. Fair warning: You'll have trouble keeping your kids out of the touch pool. But make sure you're ready for the 11:00 a.m. feeding time, where you can see the staff hand-feed moray eels and sea turtles.
