Tahiti is truly a place of postcard perfect beaches and amazing landscapes. If you are looking for a destination that offers the perfect mix of adventure with luxury, Tahiti is certainly worth looking into. From scuba diving with Manta Rays to messages in your ocean top bungalow, Tahiti can offer it all.
So whats the catch to this perfect mixture of adventure and luxury? The price. While the Euro and USD have a decent exchange rate here, prices are still very high. Since much of islands income comes from tourists, it dosent exactly cater to the budget backpacker crowd.
Hostels here are often advertised as budget resorts and because of this you can expect to pay for it. It is not uncommon to pay 20+ a night for a simple dorm room. The upside to these high hostel prices is that you access to the “resorts” amenities and facilities.
