Experience Your Best Tahiti Vacation

With miles of sandy beaches, fun tours for visitors of all ages, and dozens of things to see and do, Tahiti is a little slice of heaven for tourists.

When visiting, make sure that you visit the small boardwalk community of Vai'ete Square. Here you can find dozens of local food wagons winding throughout the area, offering cheap and tasty dishes. Even if you aren't hungry, you can have fun just watching the people go by. Culture lovers will enjoy the Marae Temple, which comprises several ancient sites that locals built to honor the gods. A visit to Orbitz.com can help you get started on planning your vacation and seeing all these destinations in person.

Best time to take a trip to Tahiti

Tahiti's tropical climate means there are warm temperatures in the area all year long. The dry season runs from April to October, and cooler temperatures of around 80 degrees Fahrenheit mark this season. The humid season starts in November and is not pleasant for tourists. Tahiti gets temperatures of 85 degrees and higher in this season, and the high humidity can cause even the most basic activities to be uncomfortable. The dry season is a much better time to visit, because you can take part in all the activities you want, as well as visit popular attractions without feeling stifled by the humidity. Make sure that you get to visit Tahiti when you want by booking your trip with Orbitz.com.
