Weather at the moment
Weather all year round
Reunion being in the southern hemisphere, the seasons are reversed compared to the Metropolis: winter is in July August and summer in November-December. That being said, it is never cold on Reunion Island, except in the heights where the temperature can drop below zero. It should be noted that the hurricane season extends from January to March and may delay flights. Finally, Reunion Island has two very distinct climates between its west coast, which beats sunshine records, and its rainy coast.
Reunion Island uses the euro. By adding the price of the ticket and the cost of the stay on site (about the prices of the French Riviera in summer), Reunion Island appears to be a relatively expensive destination, but the standard of living is essentially the same as in Metropolitan France. However, considerable savings can be made by buying food at the market or by using the very reliable buses.
Anyone of French nationality can enter and leave Reunion Island at will, and stay as long as they wish, provided they present their identity card. Reunion being a department, the administrative services are the same as in Metropolitan France, very practical for any possible problem or to settle there.
The level of care is equivalent to that of the Metropolitan area, reliable and extremely functional. Your metropolitan prescription is valid in local pharmacies. All products and reimbursement rates are identical to those in metropolitan France, despite the higher fees charged by private doctors. Everything works with the same procedures and quality of service as in France. If you have time, get a medical certificate before you leave: most diving clubs and other sports facilities require it.
Mosquitoes: in summer don't forget your mosquito repellent, cases of dengue fever are regularly reported.
