    • 1 Full Day in Tahiti b/f Moorea - what should we do? Other Questions

      French Polynesia Feb 7, 2017 at 2:44 PM


      So we'll be arriving on a late flight from LA to Tahiti - check into the Intercontinental... then we have a full day in Tahiti b/f Moorea then Bora Bora.

      So.... here's the thing - I'm not certain what I should do in my full day in Tahiti. Now would you recommend I change US dollars to cfp?

      I want: To shop for some pearls (hoping to get loose pearls for maybe earrings/bracelet or looking around for a pearl necklace). I am also thinking there may be some cultural tour we can do? Maybe site see... Or maybe shop for some food/snacks since in Moorea only breakfast is covered (man gotta find some cheap restaurants for dinner) - food in Bora Bora is covered.

      Now my problem is... I KNOW I can't do all that in one day. I also have no idea where to go in Tahiti if I wanted to shop for pearls, buy groceries, etc etc

      We arrive on Wednesday - the day in question is a Thursday. What time do shops close typically? I'm assuming Taxis should be readily available - do you tip those?

      Any advice on how to spend my day in Tahiti is appreciated!
