Re: Cost of living in the Vanuatu


$1000 wouldn't go far. We spent 5 days in vila (Sunday night to Friday Morning) and spent at least that much, not including airfares nor accomodation. However - we did some tourist stuff, and dined in the resort for 3 nights (dear as poison).

However - we had no local knowledge at all. We did indeed find cheaper places to eat etc. When we go back, we'll know where to go (and avoid) and as we know people there now we have a bit more of a network.

That is horrible!

We are planning to go there for a month this summer (juli for us up north). Can anyone give a heads up for cheap places to stay? Do not mind village stays from time to time, but a shower every now and then is appreciated.

Also cheap places to dine n' eat is great to know about ;)
