Holidays and eco-friendly trips in Mauritius
Choose from a range of Holiday Accommodation and escorted Mauritius Adventure Trips
MECO was set up in 2007 to provide an alternative holiday experience of Mauritius. Mauritius is an established luxury destination with some of the best hotels in the world. MECO is here to complement these luxury hotels and to support smaller businesses in the tourism industry, thus providing an even and fair spread of tourism to the local economy. All our accommodation are vetted to ensure they run in an eco-friendly way. We ask all our visitors to evaluate the disposables they bring to the island, as some waste is difficult to dispose of after departure. We bring a touch of local life and culture to your holiday, making your experience something truly unique.
In light of the impact tourism is having on the island, we ask our guests to contribute something to the island. In the past our guests have planted endemic, decorative or fruit bearing trees in a bid to offset the carbon footprint created to travel here.
Our guests have helped on small projects in the community painting playgrounds; participated in beach clean-ups and community involvement days. Whatever you decide to give back, it is a step in the right direction towards greener tourism in Mauritius. It is the responsibility of everyone who comes here to protect the resources, environment and support communities, giving the island a better chance of a sustainable future.
MECO also plays its part, actively supporting wildlife conservation through voluntary sponsorship of local projects, so that endangered endemic species like the Mauritian Kestrel (found only on the island) do not follow in the footsteps of the Dodo.
