    • Budget wise...

      Cook Islands Feb 18, 2010 at 3:21 PM

      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.

      Itinerary questions for low budget trip to south pacific

      Cook Islands Jan 10, 2009 at 4:26 AM

      hi there!
      reading previous posts i understand that as a generalization the south pasific islands are an expensive destination.
      but do you think that it is possible to find the low budget path somewhere?
      perhaps including the Cook islands or not...
      my main interests are tribes/villages/trekking/nature/beaches!
      if you could suggest anything feasible in terms of cost/accessibility/safety it would be a great help, so i can focus to specific destinations in my ongoing research!
      many thanks

      Recommendations for Islands in S. Pacific??? Favorite place?

      Cook Islands Dec 10, 2008 at 2:49 PM


      My fiance and I are planning a honeymoon in June 2009. We would like to start our trip off in the Cook Islands (Raro/Aitutaki) (coming from LAX). Does anyone have a recommendation of another island group outside of the Cooks that is easy to get to (flights from Rarotonga)? We're active and looking for an affordable mixture of beach/forest hiking/culture.

      Thank you so much for your help! We've been researching and researching but I thought I'd check to see if any of you have experience traveling to more than one place (country/territory) in S. Pacific.

      Cook Islands Oct 30, 2008 at 7:10 PM

      I am planning a trip to Rarotonga and Aitutaki in May next year, with my husband and son, who is 13 months old now. We are looking at staying at Reihana's or Mii (beach house at Whitesands) in Rarotonga and Amuri Sands in Aitutaki. Has anyone got any feedback on any of these places, or can anyone recommend any other good accomodation for about150 a night. We want to be as close to the beach as possible because we probably won't be hiring a car and the whole idea of going is to relax, swim and snorkel.
      Also, any feedback on Muri beach vs Titiveka, and which are the best areas on Aitutaki?

    • Some questions from Barcelona (Spain) - Safaty and Acommodation

      Cook Islands Jun 30, 2008 at 9:28 AM


      We are preparing a trip to New Zealand, and we want to spend 6 or 7 days in Cook Islands, 2 days in Rarotonga and 4-5 days in Aitutaki. We’ll go with 6 and 8 years old kids.
      Sorry if my question is stupid, but Cook Islands are very far from Spain and I don’t have enough information: We have read some blogs about different kinds of “dangerous” animals: stonefish, snakes, water snakes, sea cucumbers, sandflies, etc It’s true? It’s a safe place for small kids?

      Another question, in this case about accommodation: We are thinking in staying in “Aitutaki Lagoon Resort and Spa” in Aitutaki and in “Muri Beach Resort” in Rarotonga. Somebody knows? Can you give some opinion?

      And finally, can you give some general recommendation about Cook Islands: What to do? What to see? ... with kids

      Thank you very much

    • Future Senior Volunteer Needs Advice Finding Least Expensive Airfare to Rarotonga

      Rarotonga Jan 3, 2008 at 9:40 AM

      I haven't chosen my volunteer dates yet. The program is for approx. 2 weeks but travel arrangements are our own. Would anyone know when the least expensive times would be to fly from US to Rarotonga? I live in New Jersey and may be able to get a discounted ticket to somewhere on the west coast. Any suggested airline??
      I definitely want to snorkel while I am there so my choice of month would also have to consider nice weather for snorkeling. I've never tried it, am in my mid 60's and I don't think I want to swim if it is too cool. Sadly I haven't even been swimming in over 30 years but hope to change that now through volunteer programs in "specific" areas of the world.
      Happy New Year and thanks for your time!! Ann
