Home Stay Hosts
Each host has set the fee for accommodations and cultural activities for your Home Stay visit. The cost per accommodation varies with the type of accommodation, activities, and the village you will be staying in. Do not expect it, but don't be surprised if the family gives you a gift while you are at their home as a gesture of Samoan hospitality and generosity towards visitors. It is customary to accept the gift. You too may want to participate in this age-old Samoan tradition of gift giving. Consider giving a personal belonging or unopened store-bought food.
