I know it's taking a lot of time getting to some good stuff to share, some may find this boring but so many get shocked by the amount of money it takes to eat off the ship or when you stay pre/post cruise for a few days. We eat on the cheap and are careful with our money. Most think of French Polynesia as a trip of a lifetime but with our modifications and doing things on the cheap it has allowed us to go every year to paradise. We would rather go cheap during the pre/post cruise time and go every year than go first class once. I know several on here don't have money restrictions but for those who only dream of going a first time or want to return but can't afford take my lead and make going to paradise a reality. Our splurge is taking the PG where we are pampered ...
Here is another on the cheap place to eat in Moorea. It is a local hangout but very pretty around the end of Cook's Bay in Paopao, actually over looks the bay. The locals make this their lunch time place to hang. If you want to meet locals, this is a great place and the price is right. Nothing fancy but for $10- $15 USD two can eat well.
Yes that is me at the counter ...
We ordered a sandwich, egg rolls and quiche ... plus a coke, came to $11 USD
