    The climate is warm tropical and wet. Rainfall is likely in all months, becoming heaviest from January to March and more isolated in the sunnier drier season. Daytime temperatures are warm throughout the year, falling to comfortable at night in the drier months.

    Tropical Cyclones are possible between December and March but are rare.

    Due to extreme climatic changes the World is experiencing at the moment, trying to predict the weather can be difficult because of local, on the day variations.
    Most places now are seeing weather conditions well outside the norm.
    The information below should be used as a guide only.

    Here is the average weather for Rarotonga for this time of year.
    Enjoy your holiday.

    January.
    High 82f / 28c
    Low 73f / 23c
    Rain 10.50in / 267.0mm
    Rain days 18
    Hours of sun 7
    Daylight hours 13
    UV level 11 = Extreme
    Humidity = High

    I would not travel in the rain and cyclone season, to me the high humidity is not very pleasant.

    Getting around the Cooks is cheap. Even a rental car does not cost a lot more than NZ$ 20, and it is fun to travel by scooter. You can also take the public bus on Rarotonga (= main island) which circles the island clockwise and counter-clockwise. You can do most of those tours yourself and do not need organised tours and pay big money.

    However, the Cooks are - compared to some other destinations in the South Pacific - very affordable.
