Hi, we are off to Vanuatu soon for our first trip to Vanuatu. We are spending some time on another island then will come back to Port Vila to spend the last few days here. We have booked a self contained place about 15 mins (near airport) from central Port Vila > We will be staying in Mele Bay area I have looked up cruise ships dock times in Port Vila and one will be there for the first day have in Port Vila as we arrive late the night before.
We will want to do some shopping, supermarkets to get groceries and local markets to buy fresh fruit and veggies. So what is town like on these cruise days ? Do the prices go up ? Do we need to avoid going here shopping for groceries and fruit and veggies ? Should we avoid being in town this day ? Would there be any choices for grocery shopping for food near our accommodation or do we need to go into town ? Thanks
