    This is a must visit place in Papeete to take the air or scampering and then walk along the port, the evening is a little cluttered

    What a surprise this park. What I find is that there are very many extra fun to use is made by families with children. Wonderful playground and two cabins (porch) where you can book a half-day to bv a kinderverjaarfagspartijtje to celebrate.

    Rather than walk to small and large, sportsmen and the strollers, young and old, the Paofai gardens are the green lung of Papeete.

    Very nice to chill, children have dedicated areas where they can play safely. Dogs are authorized. Pokestops and arenas for Pogo players

Where to stay in Papeete

The best selection of hotels in Pape'ete is concentrated in the vicinity of the docks--a vibrant area with plenty of nightlife, and in close proximity to the bustling market. Options range from pricey international hotels to very affordable bed and breakfasts and family-run boarding houses. A little farther afield (and much higher up the price range), luxurious five-star resorts offer private beaches, pools, and bungalows above the gently lapping waves of the lagoon.
