I have no experience with flying or visiting Mauritius but I do have experience with Europe.  July tends to be very hot and humid in some parts of Europe especially close to the Meditteranean.  If that isn’t an issue, I would do Italy and Spain if the temperature isn’t too bad. I love both countries and there are lots to do while there.  You get the best of both worlds – you can relax and unwind and also sightsee etc.  

With Mauritius, have you researched what things you can do? I would compare the things to do and see which offers more bang for buck so to say. 

We flew to our honeymoon the next day after our wedding.  As stressful wedding planning can be, we were on a high and we slept on the long plane ride to Rome, Italy.  I say that to say – you may not be tired, you may be full of energy from being excited at being married and going on your honeymoon. 

I hope this was a tiny bit helpful to you.

betyl :  I’ve never been to Mauritius but my husband and I did a Mediterranean cruise for our 2nd anniversary and we loved Italy and Barcelona. We definitely want to go back to Cinque Terre, Amalfi, Rome, Pompeii… we saw so much! And if it’s a shorter flight, it seems like a no brainer!

Mauritius is beautiful and so relaxing. We spent 2 weeks there and loved it. But…can you do it within budget? We spent $12k for 2 weeks. 

Madrid is also one of my most favourite cities ever.

betyl :  well, you can actually visit Mauritus within your budget. Look up a flight at kiwi.com — for exmaple, in July two return tickets from JFK will costs you approximately $1500 https://www.kiwi.com/us/search/results/new-york-city-new-york-united-states/mauritius-island-mauritius/2019-07-01_2019-07-31/2019-07-01_2019-07-31

And via booking.com you can find a pretty decent room in a villa or a hotel for $500-700 per two weeks. And you’ve got $1000 for personal expenses

The cost of the trip depends on the planning. You can someone else do it for you or spend a few days browsing through various offers and finding the one that suits you best.

That’s how we planned a perfect vacation to eastern Europe. Sure, it’s quite cheap there compared to western Europe. Still, we were able to stay in 4 or 5 star hotels like The Bonerowski Palace, The Premier Palace Hotel and Mamaison Riverside Hotel Prague and enjoy our vacation without worrying about going over our budget
