Health and Safety

safety-firstIt’s always wise to take the usual precautions when travelling, especially to unfamiliar destinations. Travelling in a group is often safer than going solo, and it’s a good idea to carry photocopies of your passport, tickets, and credit cards in case the originals are lost or stolen.

Familiarise yourself with the customs and traditions of the locals, as respecting their way of life goes a long way. Before departing, it’s advisable to consult with your GP as vaccinations may be recommended for certain regions. Fortunately, the tap water in Vanuatu is clean and safe to drink, but it’s still important to practise safe eating and drinking habits and protect yourself from insect bites by wearing appropriate clothing.

Additionally, ensure you pack plenty of sunscreen lotion to shield yourself from the sun’s rays. Taking these simple precautions can help ensure a safe and enjoyable journey to Vanuatu.
