Last Minute Notes on Your Trip to the South Pacific…

March 22, 2013 · Print This Article

Gifts for the Children: If you’d like to bring a present to the Fiji Village children, I would suggest coloring pencils, color books or maybe a bunch of gum.

Tipping: Fijians dont typically expect to be tipped but of course we are use to tipping.  I probably would tip the driver that drives you even tho they dont expect it.  Remember that 5.00 USD or CDN is actually almost 10.00 in Fiji.  At the end of your stay, if you like the service, then contribute to the Christmas fund.  There will be a note in your room about tipping, they are very discreet.

Underwater camera: Go to Costco and buy a bunch of the disposable ones unless you want to spend some bucks.  I met a tourist here that spent 130.00 at Costco for a real camera and they loved it.  Anything like disposable cameras, batteries, lotions, anything is twice the price so try to remember as much as possible, like suntan lotion, bring a hat too as it is hot and sunny there.

What to pack: So, lots of tee shirts, shorts, sundresses, swim suits, snorkel and mask, sunscreen, sunglasses, hat and books for relaxing.  I would wear jeans and shoes on the plane so you can go hiking in the woods and have long pants and shoes to wear while in the bamboo rainforest or a hike to the waterfalls.  The coldest you are going to get is on the plane…
