ferry to Moorea- at $6 a pop and a forty-five minute ride a much better deal than flying from Tahiti. Plus they have $3 sandwiches and huge slabs of chocolate cake along with Tahitian beer.
Le Truck, Pape'ete- for about 1.25 US you can ride around the island of Tahiti on Le Truck, an open-air vehicle that's a ton cheaper than the cabs that prey on tourists. Not knowing better, we paid $40 for the initial 8-10 mile cab ride from the airport to our hotel.
