Definitely don't stay on Tahiti, Moorea is much nicer. We camped
very inexpensively at Chez Armelle, they have a site on the web,
can't remember the details sorry. Our tent was less than 10 metres

the bus, it meets the ferries but also has a regular timetable too.
Everyone is very friendly and helpful.
Food, well depends how active you are but at Chez Armelle they have
cooking facilities and freezers to keep food cold. We managed quite
well on pineapples, bread, cheese, pate and beer.
Hope this helps
