Savo Vacation Packages
Savo is situated about 25 miles (40 kilometers) north of Honiara, the country's capital.
Of course, visiting just one place, no matter how popular, will only ever provide you with a glimpse into the wider natural and cultural makeup of a region. So allow time to tour the Solomon Islands' other cultural and natural attractions. Tulagi Island, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the west, and Honiara, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the north of Savo are also well worth checking out.
If you are after things to do inside, make a beeline for the Solomon Islands' history museums. These are ideal places to learn a little about the local culture and perhaps pick up an unusual souvenir or two.
If you like spending time with like-minded travelers, Savo features a range of specialized tours such as guided nature walks.
There's no nicer way to get to the heart of the place you are traveling through than tasting the local produce. Often-used ingredients in this area are fish and taro roots. Follow the lead of the locals and enjoy ulu (breadfruit) or green papaya curry. To complete your typical local meal, be sure to try green papaya. Afterwards, kick back with a refreshing local kava (juice made plant roots).
Even the best vacation can't go on forever, so when it's time fly home, you'll find the nearest major airport in Honiara, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the southeast.
