Paradise At a Price
Tahiti delivers when it comes to warm, clear waters and soft Trade Wind fantasies. And it is just beyond Hawaii in distance, around eight hours from the US West Coast.
However, Tahiti is expensive. French in nationality, the food and wine culture can be outstanding here – but not inexpensive. Tahiti grows little of her own food stuff and imports almost everything that hits the tables or the markets. If these items do not come from France, they likely come from the US, New Zealand or Australia.
Still, time away in a perfected South Pacific paradise can be priceless, as Gauguin and Brando discovered.
