Loved Pago Pago - the friendliest people out of all the ports we stopped at. Went on a tour run by Alofa tours and saw the western side of the island in one of the cool wooden buses.Good commentary throughout and they took us to the top of the mountain for some great views. Went to Sadie Thompson Inn (near Mcdonalds) where it nice and cool in the bar and free wifi. Read Less

To Sua Ocean Trench is wonderful! The island roads are terrible, but Samoa is a lovely island.

Just jump the local bus and go for a ride along the coastline, costs $1.00 each way per person and rub shoulders (literally) with the locals. It makes for a great and inexpensive way to see the island. Most of the locals speak English and ... Read More

First ever being there without any prior knowledge. Took "VJ's" tour bus (randomly selected from the port) to see the east end of American Samoa for $25/pp. Family run. Awesome tour with lots of cultural information. She even stopped at her own home. Highly recommended. Even though it appears American Samoa is dirt poor, it's a cultural and lifestyle difference. So eye-opening this visit and so different from French Polynesia. Read Less

The entrance into Pago Pago harbor in American Samoa is one of the most beautiful in the world. After that... The ship's pier is on one side of the harbor. The tuna cannery is on the other. I had the port, and a noisy, smelly view of the container shipping yard. Tour possibilities were few and far between (the ship's excursion desk offered only four or five tours). I chose to walk around Pago Pago. You can do it in less than an hour. I did not experience the "$2 dollar beach". I did visit the Tauese Ocean Center for a presentation that was filled with cruise ship passengers but its electronic presentation was on the fritz that morning. Downtown Pago Pago is a mix of fairly modern buildings (most of them government) and older buildings dating back to the 1920s. On boat days, there will be kiosks selling clothing and souvenirs if you turn right when leaving the port and walk about a quarter-mile. Note that there are no major department stores or malls in American Samoa. Shoppers can visit the open-air Fagatogo Market, or one of the two local "supermarkets" a short walk from the pier. Keep in mind that if you choose to take public transit, the buses are fairly primitive and wooden benches are the rule and not the exception. They are not expensive and, being a U.S. territory, dollars are widely accepted. It is probably worth it to take a bus around the island and experience the lushness of this tropical island, as well as the National Park on the other side of the island from the city of Pago Pago.

took the $2 bus to the $2 beach (which actually charger $5 to get in). Snorkelling is very good if you hit high tide. Else there is not much to see.

Pago Pago is a lovely spot. We asked a taxi driver to show us around - $25-20 for a couple of ours. Interesting and beautiful spot, however our cabbie didn't speak very much english

Nice little port town with tent area for shopping. Within walking distance. Spent most of the day at Tisa's Barefoot Bar. About a half hour drive. You can flag one of the open air buses down and get them to take you there and back for about $20. This is a must stop for a true island experience. Candyman built, owns and runs the place. He'll tell you stories and serve you. Small secluded beach with mild surf for swimming and snorkeling. Drinks made from fresh ingredients. Even though they weren't serving food yet, his wife whipped us up a shrimp and banana chip meal when we said we were hungry that was delicious. He can tell you stories about the tsunamis that have hit there and how he built the place. Read Less

A quiet, rugged place that does not represent "beautiful America" at all. Buildings run down and poor streets.
