We will be arriving in Papeete at 10 pm. I am assuming we will not clear customs and baggage till maybe midnight. I asked our hotel the Manava Suites if the would arrange transportation from the airprot to the hotel and they responded to take a taxi since the hotel is about 5 km away. All the guide books say not to use taxis since they are extremely expensive and not to use them.
Should I just take a taxi and will there be some at the airport at that time? How much do they cost? Do we pay in USD of CFP? Should we arrange private transportation? How much would that cost and who would we contact?
Any input is appreciated. Thanks.
