Some let downs in South Pacific

I was so excited to see Galapagos. Not anymore. $1000 (about) just to check in. Poor anchorages (Isabella ok). Can't do anything without a guide. They were generally non-interested, just take your money kind of people. Place is not even that pretty. Water not that clear. For sure would not do it again

Tahiti. Wow, again I was excited but Papeete is noisy, traffic jammed, and without character. Very few places with beach or anchorage. Overall a waste. Moorea and the other islands nice however

Upside, Marquesas and Tuamatu's fantastic. Suwarrow (northern Cook) very cool. Am Samoa ok, Samoa very cool
