    • Looking for interesting French Islands in the PAcific to visit and maybe live.

      French Polynesia Feb 8, 2016 at 7:24 AM

      Some people had told me of very pleasant French Pacific Islands that are accessible only by boat or ship in which life there would be good for a visitor. They were reluctant to name the Islands - which did not seem very generous. Have any of you visited any of these and can name 1 or 2 that you like. Thank you for any help you can offer.

      TAHITI, MOOREA, BORA BORA 8 nights

      Tahiti Jan 25, 2016 at 11:48 AM

      I have 8 nights, 2 in Papetee, 3 in Moorea, and 3 in Bora Bora. I will arrive the 27th february. I am not interested in bathson, or staying more than a couple of hours in the beach.
      Please, which are the best places to see the people living in the islands (we speak french),... which are the best trips to enjoy nature... To go around each island is better to rent a car, o to pay a taxi driver...?
      I will be very grateful about your advice!

    • Fakarava ATM & Activities

      French Polynesia Dec 31, 2015 at 7:12 PM

      Does anyone know if there is an ATM in Rotoava, Fakarava, or anywhere on the atoll of Fakarava? We're visiting on a cruise ship, and while I don't think I'll need many French Polynesian Francs, I would like to be able to get a small amount.

      Also, if anyone has been there on a cruise, I'd be interested to see if any excursions were offered at the tender pier there.

      Info appreciated!

    • Matira Beach & Airport Transportation

      Bora-Bora Nov 30, 2015 at 9:50 AM

      I'm coming on a cruise ship in late January; thinking of taking a cab to and from Matira Beach from Vaitape. Could someone tell me about how much this would be, and if cabs are readily available at any particular place at either location? Also, do you tip? Are there any other possible ways of getting there and back? Since we're going to be on cruise ship, I assume any available Le Truck options will be limited. Will there be any minbuses for a shared ride? Also, is it possible to take a minibus or other mode of transportation other than cab to the airport and back, just as a scenic ride?

    • Finding a minister

      Bora-Bora Mar 29, 2015 at 9:54 PM

      We are hoping to find a minister/associate minister who would be willing to conduct a christian ceremony with vows while we are in Bora Bora in late May. We have the legalities taken care of and even the ceremony is planned out, and all we are missing is a officiant who shares our beliefs. (which is very important to us if we can find someone). We have contacted the wedding coordinator at the Le Meridian where we are staying, but they only provide the folklore weddings and the same people who run those are the ones they are providing for a western ceremony. If anyone has any contacts (email or phone) in Bora Bora (or even Moorea, Taha'a, or Huahine) to a protestant/christian minister or any of the local churches of similar faith, I would greatly appreciate any help you can give. The catholic church will only marry Catholics and I read there used to be a Presbyterian and a Baptist church on the island but not sure what is there today and how I might contact them or find an updated phone directory/yellow pages type of information exists to be able to look up someone who we can work with. Thank you to anyone who can point me in the right direction!

      are there honeymoon options that are more affordable than others?

      French Polynesia Feb 1, 2015 at 5:18 PM

      My fiance and I are interested in having our honeymoon in the French Polynesia area. He's especially interested in Tahiti, though the expense concerns me. He's got his heart set on staying in an over water bungalow, and he's more of the loungey lazy, "soak in the scenery" type. I'd like to also incorporate a fair amount of photography, and site seeing - I love cool architecture and different shopping areas. I like to be in the midst of the more authentic areas (at least for some of my site seeing)
      Money is a concern. We will be flying out of the washington DC area - I know this will be an expensive trip, however, are there some places that offer this mixture for a better cost than others?

      I'd really like to get your opinions!!

      Thanks!

      Do you know of some car rentals in Nuku Hiva who would meet us at the dock
      with the vehicle? We had a 4WD rented, but since the cruise line changed the itinerary,
      I haven't been able to contact the company to change our date. I wonder if it being Jan 1,
      2015, makes any difference. Thank you for helping.

      Not on our honeymoon... boredom perhaps?

      Hello all,
      Going to Bora Bora mid October for a few weeks. This is NOT our honeymoon but as my husband calls it "a normal vacation". We are concerned of the quiet island life and are wondering if we will be bored. We enjoy pubs, dancing, good wine & food. Will we be disappointed by the lack of night life here?

      Hi I was wondering what the cheapest way is to get from Faaa airport to Papara.
      Im planning a quick 3 night stop over trip. The accomodation I'm most likely to book offer a shuttle service for 6000XPF each way per person. This sounds quite pricey to me as the ride is only half an hour.

      Could someone please let me know what the cheapest way is to get to Papara?
