Bora bora and papeete money

Recommended Posts

Doing 1 day on Bora Bora and Papeete as part of transpacific cruise. Do I need CFP francs or can I use US dollars everwhere?

You can also use US dollars.Ā  Last time we were there, some souvenirs were more expensive in CFP francs than US dollars.

There are banks close by at both locations. Typically the local smaller vendors will give a better price for local currency as when they convert they always give themselves the benefit of the exchange rate. Polynesians are not into haggling šŸ˜‰
