Hi VTers - My husband and I are doing research for our next vacation and one of the places we are considering are the Cook Islands. From the tips posted here, it looks like there are a few spots in the Cook Islands where you can stay. I was hoping to hear from some VTers who have been there who can recommend the best part of Cook Islands to stay. We're adventure vacationers, so we like to Scuba, snorkel, jet ski, hike, etc. Of course, we want some relaxation too. Thanks for your help!

Thinking of visiting Cook Islands for a 10 day break a friend and wondering if there are any better locations than others we should consider. Have quite a few packages going that we are looking at but have no idea if they are in good areas or not. Should we stay on Rarotonga or make the trek to other islands. We're interested in scuba diving and a nice resort - not particularly family orientated tho - and near some night life or restaurants, entertainment? Or any combination of these 3 ? Dates are app 19 -30 Sep Any suggestions welcome. I have Trip ADvisor on standby - thanks
We arrive at 2420 and the hotel will provide a shuttle, for70. Just wondering if there are taxis there at that time of night and if they would charge a lot? We are going to the Edgewater......

I am researching a trip I am planning for my Dad.In his earlier days he was in the navy.He spent time in the Cook Islands.I know he would like to visit there again.Are there any sites that have any U.S.Naval history to them to visit? Thanks Angelsmom.
Hi VTers, We're going to be in the Cooks for 2 weeks in Nov. We're spending 11 nights in Etu Moana in Aitutaki. And 1 night in Rarotonga at Edgewater Resort. Has anyone had experiences with them? Also what's the best way to get from the airport to Edgewater in Rarotonga? Do they have a shuttle? Our flight back to LA is late Satuday midnight. I wonder what's the best way to spend the day on Saturday. What kind of things can we do in Rarotonga that Friday and Saturday? Hoping to see a little bit of scenery and the villages. Anything that we should know about when traveling there in November? Anything specific we should be packing? We want to dive a little in Aitutaki, is it better if we do the lessons before we get there? Thanks for your help guys! Alex

I actually found this lovely place recently. One my customer lives at Cooks Island and I started to google the place. It's so beautiful. If I'm thinking to stay Rarotonga for 4-7 days what would be the average budget? How much is the average accomodation rate? How much to rent canoes, or small boats? How much are the foods? Any comments will be great! I'm in Vancouver Canada.
