Access and Facilities

Price level is extremely high. There is only one awful camping place on Tahiti Iti. Accommodations are rare and very expensive. It seems the accommodation on Relais de Moroto give good packages, but on weekend mostly booked out. This is located on an island crossing in the mountains. The French people told me, set up your tent somewhere in Papenoo valley. There is a created lake where I saw a heron.
