RE: Housing in Majuro
I spent three months in Majuro in the summer of 2003. I was staying with the Jesuit Volunteers at Assumption school, so I can't answer much about housing options. There was an outrigger hotel and a great "resort" in Uliga.
However, if you're in a place with a kitchen I would say you're never going to spend more than100 per month on food. For one thing, there aren't many places you're going to go out to eat. (There are a couple of ex-pat places, but if you're there volunteering, you're probably not going to spend much time there.) There are a couple of grocery stores, where we stocked up on ramen. The prices at the grocery store are similar to those in the states. I ate coconuts all day long. And the residents in Majuro are wonderfully hospitable. There is great generosity there. We couldn't go a weekend without being invited to a Kaamem or over somewhere for a meal. (Of course, it's always best to invite others over as well!)
Do eat the fermented breadfruit!!!
