Papeete — 6 nights
The capital of French Polynesia, Pape'ete amounts to little more than a medium-sized town by Western standards, but it is still a thriving hub of culture and commerce.Change things up with these side-trips from Papeete: Afareaitu Waterfalls (in Afareaitu), Off-Road Tours (in Maharepa) and Eglise de la Sainte Famille (in Ha'apiti). There's much more to do: look for gifts at Papeete Roulottes, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Lagoonarium, admire the natural beauty at Paofai Gardens, and take some stellar pictures from Belvedere Lookout.
