HERE ARE THE PLANS YOU CAN CHOOSE FROM

What is the island of Moorea like? Well, a dream world. To tell the truth, it's a real struggle to even begin to describe Moorea properly but, I’ll do my best. Shortly after your arrival you'll notice a cool mountain breeze on your skin, the intoxicating scent of flowers, and of course, the tranquil sight of the ocean. Quickly, overwhelmed by the landscape, your eyes are scanning in every direction. So much so, that your thoughts need a few seconds to catch up to your senses. The best I can compare the feeling to is that feeling of complete freedom when riding along the coast of California or cruising down an open road on a Harley Davidson.

The mesmerizing deep sapphire blues that meet the horizon, the bright and intense aqua shore waters, almost as if it’s glowing. All of a sudden, your thoughts, cares, and worries are slowly put to peace. Turning to look the other way you're stunned. Here is this massive volcanic mountain! It is covered in so many shades of green from the wide variety of trees growing. How? What planet is this? Is this real life?
