Is it safe to move around in Vanuatu?

Vanuatu was voted the Happiest Country on Earth in 2006. You will find the people friendly and only too happy to assist the visitor. There is no problem moving anywhere in Vanautu and there are no nasty creepy crawlies with poisonous bites, waiting for a victim, in the bush.

The only word of caution, as in any country in the world, it is not advisable for women to wander around on their own at night. There is always the rebel element in every society who want to make fun after a few drinks.

Is it safe to drink the tap water?

Absolutely. We never buy water ourselves, but drink from the tap.
