Buy French Polynesian francs at home before you leave, you get a better exchange rate at your bank than at an ATM on the islands, and better deals using the francs.

We went on a snorkel excursion. I recommend doing some sort of snorkel excursion or island tour since there is not much to do in the main town. Local tours are offered as you come off the tender. We ate at a geat Chinese Restaurant, the Sea Horse right where the tender drops you off.

This was the only port with a warft other than Papeete. That means the market and the art shops are with in walking distance and should be visited. Try to go beyond the shops at the dack, they are better stocked and priced.

We just walked along the wharf area (this was not a tendered port) and worked our way over to the second street, where there were locals. We heard beautiful singing and stood at the back of the catholic church and enjoyed the local music. Found a couple of art shops and intersting spots. Some friends went out on boats and enjoyed the water and motu.

We went to the vanilla plantation and a black pearl farm. It was interesting hearing about both and experiencing it. Unfortunately, the pearl shopping was a disappointment here. It seemed picked over. The vanilla plantation, our host was very informed and I truly understand how it's produced. I thought we would be able to buy bigger bottles of vanilla and was disappointed that they were tiny bottles for $10.00 each. I did buy some beans and am making my own though.
