Whether you choose to relax on a soft sand beach or explore the volcanoes, waterfalls and remote villages, Vanuatu is a country that is diverse and unique. From the locals who live in the most primitive of villages to those who reside in the capital of Port Vila, Vanuatu has some of the friendliest people in the world. Their love of their country, unique tribal traditions and carefree attitudes make visitors feel like they’re a part of the community and instantly at ease.
English is an official language, as is French, but the deeper away from the cities you go; the more you’ll hear the Creole and ancient languages that make up this culture. Regardless of where a local is from, they are always willing to help.
With ancient customs such as craft making and land diving still practiced in Pentecost, visitors can find a lifestyle unlike any other. Modern adventures like abseiling or diving are also very popular with unique outdoor opportunities on every island.
Lodging in Vanuatu ranges from budget guesthouses that overlook the ocean, to bungalows built over turquoise lagoons with glass bottom floors to watch the underwater world go by. Jetting off to your next island is easily possible, with ferries departing almost daily but nearly never on schedule. Just ensure to pack your relaxed pace to match the locals.
Here is a list of adventures to experience in Vanuatu:
- Dive the Blue Caves of the rugged north coast.
- Observe the land divers, the birth of the bungee jump that has young men plummeting into the earth all in the name of a good yam harvest.
