Tahiti with Tahia Itinerary (12 Days)

In this itinerary, we covered the familiar Society Islands of Tahiti (also more formally known as French Polynesia). Thus, we spent time on Tahiti Island, Moorea Island, and Bora Bora Island. We were able to make this trip happen from a cost perspective because we got practically an impossibly great deal that was only possible in the Wet Season. We were also able to get a free upgrade to stay overwater for our first time together thanks to Julie getting us to become Ambassador members. And finally, we were able to bring our daughter, who could fly practically free because she wasn't yet two years old.

However, it was for these reasons that this trip wasn't quite as enjoyable as our first time here. That was because the weather was persistently bad for most of the trip (think tropical downpours and flash floods), and our daughter made things a bit difficult in terms of enjoying some sit down dining as well as trying to get some sleep on the red-eye flight back home. Nevertheless, in taking the good with the bad, we learned quite a few things about this trip in terms of traveling with a child. We also managed to get some more waterfalling successes that we weren't able to do before as we had managed to hire a car on Tahiti Island as well as on Moorea Island. The table below summarizes our logistics and associated activities for our second stint in Paradise.
