About Our Destination
Climate
The average maximum daytime temperature in Papeete, Tahiti in September is a warm 80°F (27°C) with moderate heat & humidity. The average night-time temperature is usually a comfortable 66°F (19°C).
Currency
The official currency of Tahiti is the French Polynesian Franc (XPF). Most of the tourist venues will accept U.S. bills and Euros, as well as major credit cards, but may give change in Polynesian Francs. We recommend that you use an ATM to get some Polynesian Francs while there, or exchange a few with a hotel if staying there a day or two prior. Taxis will accept U.S. dollars.
If traveling from any other country than the U.S., we recommend that you convert your local denomination to US Dollars or Euro before you leave, as these are both widely accepted.
