Travel to Rarotonga

Nestled in the heart of Polynesia, the Cook Islands are north-east of New Zealand in the Pacific Ocean. The Cook Islands are a dream getaway - the fantasy of a desert island retreat. Secluded and off the beaten path, this country of 15 small islands hosts only 7,500 North American visitors a year, making it a truly unique destination. The perfect get-away to relax, refresh and renew. Book your trip early to get the best price and choice of dates. Visiting the South Pacific has never been so easy and affordable.
