Destination French Polynesia Tahiti South Pacific hotel suggestions basic information and travel assistance

With my upcoming Tahiti Specialist Conference, I wanted to get some initial information posted on the lovely islands French Polynesia.

118 Reasons To Go…
    Five Groups Of Islands,
      All Closely Resembling Paradise

French Polynesia is 118 geographically-dispersed islands in the South Pacific; the area stretches over 1,245 miles. You’re probably most familiar with Tahiti or Bora Bora, but Mo’orea and Raiatea are also charmers. Snorkeling, diving, Tahitian dance workshops, and straight-up lying around on the beach are all popular activities.

The French Polynesian islands make a great tropical getaway. On the same time zone as Hawaii, with much more cultural variety.

When Should I go to French Polynesia Tahiti South Pacific When is a good time to go there

Best times to visit French Polynesia are November and April. These short shoulder seasons offer fine weather with temperatures in the mid-70s to mid-80s. High season runs from May to October when rain showers are isolated and the number of tourists swells.

The humid season -also called Rainy season- starts in November and ends in March. It brings mugginess, humidity as well as heavier and more frequent rains than in the dry season. During that season, tropical storms may occur.
