Approx costs in Moorea

Hi

Staying in Moorea in a private house soon (SEPT) - booked on VRBO.

Just wonderring about costs and having CASH,.

We will be cooking most of the time for outselves and want to buy fresh TUNA and other seafood.

Approx how much for good quality Tuna Steaks per KG?

Also any prices for some veges etc?

Or a bottle of COKE?

This would give us a price point to work on!

Cheers

Chris

Just got back from Moorea. We were on a resort (Hilton) most of the time, but did venture off to the local markets a few times. You should be able to get soda for a few hundred franks. (On resort it was 500 for a can, off resort, it was 100-200.)
