Going Troppo Night Life Tour

  • Tour–Sight

Updated 12/14/2012

Fodor's Review

Rarotonga has gorgeous natural scenery to savor by day and plenty of entertainment to enjoy at night. For a small island, it has an impressive nightlife scene, with some 50 restaurants and a couple dozen bars. Friday is the big night out, with bars open until 2 am, compared with the usual midnight closure. A fun way to join the party and visit several spots in one evening is to take a seat on the Going Troppo Night Life Tour bus. "Go Troppo" in the Oceania region means

having an "insane time," as troppo is slang for the tropical diseases that make people a little crazy. A 35-seater bus picks up patrons from their hotels and hits the nightclubs, pubs, and bars of Avarua for a fun time. Everybody is issued one free cocktail, and a few onboard games help get the party started. It's a six-hour tour, starting at 6pm and lasting until 1 am, so prepare by first enjoying an afternoon nap in the shade of a palm tree.
