Rodrigues – Slow life, hospitality, adventure and authenticity, that’s what Rodrigues is all about. On this small island in the middle of the Indian Ocean, people still take time for life. After a few days you also go back to a lower gear and join the relaxed rhythm of the day. Whether you take a boat trip through the lagoon, enjoy the famous squid curry or take a dip in the sea, everything is possible and nothing is compulsory. That’s why the Rodriguans say: “You come as a tourist and leave as a local.”
