Weather all year round
The climate of French Polynesia is tropical oceanic. There are two seasons: the dry season from April to October (during the southern winter) and the rainy season from November to March (it is then warmer and especially more humid because it rains a lot). The average temperature (of both air and water!) varies between about 24 and 28°C. However, the climate varies according to the archipelagos: it is cooler in the Austral, and warmer in the Marquesas
The only currency used locally is the Pacific franc (CFP for Pacific franc rate), whose international code is XPF. Overall, the very high cost of living is the consequence of the importation of many products into Polynesia, and of taxation. Ideally, you should monitor accommodation and sailing trips, which can be very advantageous.
For any French national, travelling to French Polynesia is very simple since all you need is a simple identity document, the national identity card. However, airlines making stopovers with passengers in transit through Japan or the United States require an up-to-date biometric passport, valid for at least six months after the date of return, to be presented to immigration authorities. Moreover, you need to complete an ESTA Authorization online, even for a simple transit through the USA.
The health situation and all hospital infrastructures in Tahiti are comparable to those in Western countries. Tahiti has two clinics (Cardella and Paofai) and two hospitals (Mamao Territorial Hospital, next to Papeete, and Taravao Hospital). It is the island of French Polynesia which is, of course, the best provided with general practitioners and specialists. As for the other islands, only Moorea and Raiatea have a hospital. On all islands, a doctor can normally be consulted.
In addition to sunburn and sunburn, nono bites, tourista, as well as wounds due to corals or any injury, which must be disinfected, beware of mosquitoes at all costs! Because if Polynesia has no predators for humans, it can potentially cause you many worries: dengue fever is relatively widespread, as is chikungunya, and zika to a lesser extent
