If you want to experience a slice of village life in Vanuatu and have only a few days to do it, Taloa village is the place to do it. The guesthouse is pretty basic and could do with a good clean but the women and the kids are always laughing and smiling and the food is local fare with lots of rice and manioc, yams etc. It cost 3000vt per head with three meals in July 2010. Two bedrooms sleep four (two singles, one double). There are mosquito nets and solar lighting (take a few energy efficient bulbs as there were some missing when we were there). Take a bit of western food with you, a bag of sweets or pens to give the kids and maybe a cheap volleyball or soccer ball to leave behind and you'll have a great time, like we did. Nick (5348531) speaks very good English and can help out in any way. The villagers are rebuilding the Nakamal, which is worth looking at. A couple of days here and then a few at Wora Namoa Bunglow on Pele is a great combination. Jeff (774617) the boat driver.

We stayed in early Feb 09, it cost us 3000Vt each including meals (which were huge and plentiful), we liked that the roof was tin so you didnít have bugs or gecko droppings falling from the ceiling on you and inside was nice and dry during the torrential downpours that occurred each night.
All windows have bug screens and there wasnt much of an issue with mosquitos there. The villagers are lovely and friendly, the snorkeling excellent but you must take your own gear with you. If you snorkel on the marine reserve area it cost 400vt each. Couldnt visit the banyan tree as there was a dispute going on. Nguna is a welcome change from Port Vila.

I stayed here in January 2007 with a group of friends. Was 2500 vatu per person which included accommodation, and 3 meals per day. The facilities are basic so you are roughing it a bit but it's a lot of fun. There are mosquito nets in the rooms with the beds, but the main room with mattresses does not have nets or hooks to hang nets from, so if your group has more than 4 ppl you may like to consider this. The food was filling and yummy, lots of rice and fruit, and chicken. The ladies were sweet and I loved that we were supporting a women's collective by staying there. And yes, men are most welcome. One word of advice, if you are going to visit the Banyan Tree House ask the women from the collective who to contact, as we had a guide who apparently was dodgy.

Stayed for 1 night in June 2006. We had a wonderful time, the people were very friendly, the food was great, the snorkelling straight off the beach was awesome. Would be a great place to take kids.
