With regard to an average cost per meal, usually, a nice dinner for two persons, each having appetizer, main course, glass of wine, coffee and sharing a dessert will cost about $120 to $150 USD for a couple on Moorea or Tahiti. The same meal is a bit more in Bora Bora at about $130 to $175 USD for a couple.
I would bring at least $100 in cash…. probably won’t need any more than $200 though….if most of your meals and excursions will be through your hotel. If you notice the last couple days that you still have a lot of cash left, use most of it to pay down your final hotel bill.
Tahiti is out of the main hurricane belt, so it is rare, but it can happen. If you want to avoid the rare chance of a hurricane occuring while you are on Bora Bora, book outside of November, December, January and February.
