Vanuatu was recently devastated by Cyclone Pam, and as a country so reliant on tourism, it depends heavily upon foreign visitors to get back on its feet. If you want to lend a hand to some of the friendliest, most hospitable people you could hope to meet, the best way to do that is simply by spending your tourist dollars in Vanuatu. The islands offer scuba diving at coral reefs, underwater caverns and wrecks such as the WWII-era troopship SS President Coolidge. Vanuatu is not a country of mega-resorts or worldwide chains, but one of character-filled boutique hotels, often set in secluded locales. One of the best is Eratap, a beach resort tucked away about 40 minutes outside of Port Vila. With only 12 luxurious villas facing on to Teouma Bay, the staff are friendly, the service is personal, and it's often easy to imagine that you have the entire place to yourself.
