Travelers seeking the ultimate retreat need to look no further than here: the Cook Islands. 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. Those craving a getaway from the distractions and stresses of everyday life will surely find tranquility on these Islands; there are no traffic lights, no chain restaurants, and no buildings taller than the tallest palm tree in the entire Cook Islands.
The Cook Islands offer a variety of accommodations for visitors to choose from, from family-friendly resorts, to quaint self-catering options, to luxurious adults-only villas. Once in the Cook Islands, visitors can engage in a number of activities while on their vacation. Because the Cook Islands are known for their white sandy beaches and crystal clear ocean water, many activities are beach-related, including snorkeling and diving, kitesurfing, paddleboarding, and lagoon cruising. For visitors seeking some activity on land, scooters are available for rent to explore; there’s only one road that goes around the entire circumference of Rarotonga - about 19 miles! Visitors can also take a safari tour to experience the interior of Rarotonga: on a bus, or, if feeling more adventurous, on 4WD bikes.
Book your trip early to get the best price and choice of dates. Visiting the South Pacific has never been so easy and affordable.
