Poppys is only a 15 minute walk into town, but it is equally easy to catch a bus (any small mini bus with a “B” on the number plate, there are no set routes, just wave your hand at the side of the road) or a taxi, and the taxis come right down from the road to the reception of Poppys and will drive you anywhere in Port Vila town for a very low fare.
The water in Vanuatu is very safe to drink but is quite high in calcium.
Our personal observations and those of our Ni-Vanuatu staff seem to indicate there is no real “rainy season” and “dry season” any more for the past 8 years…Temperatures in April to October range from 22 to 30°C. November to January is warmer and February and March are usually the hottest months with temperatures to around 35°C, showers are usually only intermittent,and it’s always tropical paradise!
