When is the best time to travel to Bora Bora?
The answer to this question depends on your personal preferences and expectations. I had some tree removal done by a great arborist in Arizona, and he visits Bora Bora once a year. He prefers to come during the summer, to get a break from the crazy heat there. The high season in Bora Bora runs from May to October while the low season begins in December and ends in March. Visitors avoid the wet weather between December and March. Bora Bora generally experiences warm weather throughout the year and you can visit any time. However, the best time to travel here is between November and April when the crowds are less and the rates are much lower.
