Tahiti: Know Before You Go

August 22, 2017

Tahiti!  Easier to travel to than you might imagine, Tahiti's Faa'a Airport is under 8 hours by air from Los Angeles LAX airport, with daily nonstop flights. As far south of the equator as Hawaii is north, Tahiti is halfway between California and Australia, on the same side of the International Date Line as North America, and in the same time zone as Hawaii

 

WEATHER

Temperatures average about 79 degrees (F) year around, both the air temperature and the water temperature. The Islands of Tahiti are a tropical destination blessed with lots of sun and enough rain to keep the waterfalls flowing and the flowers blooming.
 

OFFICIAL LANGUAGE

French & Tahiti but English is spoken and understood in tourist areas.
 

GOOD TO KNOW

Hotels use either 110 or 220 volts, depending on the location. A converter/adapter is often required for appliances you bring, including computers.
 

WHAT TO PACK

The climate and lifestyle on the islands call for casual and comfortable clothing. Pack loose-fitting, natural fabrics and plenty of shorts. Pareus and swimsuits can be worn during the daytime at the resorts, while casual shirts and walking shorts provide the most comfort during island explorations. For dinner, casual slacks and sport shirts are the best choice for men while cool sundresses are most appropriate for women.
 

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

Valid passport valid for three months beyond date of departure
 

TRANSPORTATION TIPS

The most inexpensive and common form of transportation is the public bus system. On Tahiti there are now two types of buses: the open-air trucks called Le Truck and the RTC large white coaches. Both operating frequently in Papeete and around the island. Le Truck also operates on most other islands. Taxis can be hired at most hotels, airports, and ferry terminals. For scenic tours around the islands, try escorted excursions by boat, 4x4 safari, bus,or helicopter
