Some advice before departure
To prepare your trip to French Polynesia, here’s some useful information:
– As in any tropical region, mosquitoes are present in French Polynesia, especially during the rainy season. It is easy to protect yourself with a mosquito repellent that you will find in pharmacy or in the shops of the island.
– Protect yourself from the sun with a high-index sunscreen (even in gray weather).
– Geckos (small lizards) are very common in Polynesian dwellings. Perfectly harmless, they are very useful against insects.
– The « cent-pieds », a centipede with a very painful sting, is found chiefly in moist places.
– In the lagoon, it is advisable to wear aquatic shoes to protect yourself from corals and a possible (but rare) encounter with a venomous stone fish.
– The electrical standards are different from those of the US in particular. Think of bringing an AC adapter.
