    • Best side of the island for sandy beaches and weather

      Cook Islands Mar 16, 2014 at 6:21 PM

      I am planning to go to the Cook Islands for Christmas and am trying to decide the best side of the island to rent a home. Just like Maui, I know one side is always nicer than the other . Do you have any suggestions. There was one place called seaspray villas but want to make sure the beach is not rocky.

      I will be travelling to Rarotonga (and Aitutaki) for three weeks in September - can anyone give me advice please about getting a sim card with combined data and calls (or even just with data). I wont need a huge amount of data - just enough to keep in touch with email and some light web use - maybe a little bit of Skype

      My options are to put a sim card in either an iphone 4 or an iphone 5 and use that as a hot spot - or I could put a sim in my ipad just for data

      Searching for Advice on Cook Islands

      Cook Islands Apr 5, 2012 at 9:19 AM

      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!

      Best location in Cook?

      Cook Islands Aug 3, 2011 at 4:13 AM

      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

      Vacation in the Cooks for 2 Weeks

      Cook Islands Oct 14, 2010 at 5:12 PM

      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!
