Bora Bora, a small South Pacific island situated in French Polynesia, is a place pf breathtaking beauty and exquisite natural wonders. Swimming, diving and water sports are virtually a way of life, and the lagoon and basaltic peaks clad in lush tropical verdure are a haven for wildlife.
To make the most of your island adventure, pay for a vacation package that fits your budget. With a flight and accommodation all in one inclusive package, you can take advantage of standard preferential rates, leaving you plenty to spend on simply having a wonderful time.
Bora Bora is hot throughout the year, even during the rainy season. The temperature averages a high of 87.4 degrees Fahrenheit and a low of 74.8. The rainy season runs from December through to February.
Ideally, the months between March to May are the best to aim for when booking a vacation package. This coincides with the Easter period, when the number of vacationers begins to increase.
