I'm always on the lookout for furnishings for my non-existent tiki bar. Since skulls are popular I thought I'd mention Bone Clones, which makes reproductions for museums and institutions: http://www.boneclones.com/catalog-human-adult-skulls.htm

I've got a couple and the quality is amazing. You have to take a very close look to know they're reproductions.

Super expensive, but those are cool, man. Really cool.

I'm molding a cheap medical skull right now to make a bunch of casts, but those ones are niiiiiiiiice.

You can even get a Polynesian skull if you're really looking for authenticity: http://www.boneclones.com/BC-302.htm

Or for the more budget minded Tiki Bar there are always several on Etsy for FAR LESS money:

None of these are my shops but I did buy one of these from Lost Island Traders and it looks great!

To be fair, Bone Clones are meant to be indistinguishable from the real thing. I'd love to have some of those.

You can get plastic ones relatively cheap, and if you're good, make them look real from 5ft away.

Bone Clones products are frequently used by museums. As I mentioned, I have a couple and they really are impressive, even at close range.

I've just started making Skulls in Ceramic - I can make them to order - POA.

Here's a few I've made already (not all Tiki!)
