Just a couple months ago we spend a full week in Bora Bora and I can’t say enough good things about this magical place. Bora Bora is amazingly beautiful and the closest thing to paradise we have ever seen. Unfortunately this place is not very cheap in fact is one of the most expensive travel destinations in the world.

Some people believe Bora Bora is beautiful but not worth the trip because they feel there’s nothing to do or feel they’ll be very limited by being stuck in the hotel. And, this might be true to some extent. We, ourselves, had postponed our trip because we worried we’d get bored for the same reasons. You see, we’re the type of people who like to stay active, even on vacation. So, naturally, we assumed just because it was a small island that there would be nothing to do. Boy, were we wrong…

For the last couple months people have been asking us how we managed to stay 6 nights for free in Bora Bora. Most people don’t believe us because they think it’s impossible to stay for free at one of the most expensive destinations in the world. Well I can assure you that its definitely possible and we just did it about 4 months ago. Here’s the proof:
We’ll that’s definitely us in Bora Bora at one of the best hotels, rated 3rd best hotel in Bora Bora on Tripadvisor.com, but how did we do it?
