We found this place to be a wonderful way to learn about the Samoa Culture. It is a whole program that lasts several hours and it is completely free. The morning starts out with an introduction to making an eating bowl out of coconut leaves to eat lunch that they prepare for you. You are lead around the village by very nice young Samoan man that shows you how Samoans tattoo their bodies, how they start cooking fires and then cook the local fish and food, a wood carving demonstration and how they make the Tappas by hand. The morning ends with a meal of Fish, Taro, and Plantain that was cooked in a wood fire and served in the homemade bowls that were hand made by the audience. They perform many of their native dances as everyone ate their meal. It's a little over a 3 hour program but, very well worth the time to experience. Memories will will always have.

Staff can help with touring the two main islands, but for us, the main attraction was the great show that the Centre puts on most mornings. The "House of Pain," where you can observe traditional tattooing, is impressive, but we really loved the enthusiastic dancing and singing, and the demonstration of food preparation and bark painting. AND IT IS ALL FREE!

The display was great. I have seen it previously but it was still a very pleasant couple of hours. There was a ship in port and the people came and went. The meal at the end, served in the flax baskets we made, was very tasty and it was generous of the staff to provide this for us at no charge
