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.

Flights to Cook Islands
There are no high rise hotels and no freeways although you can rent a scooter to go around the main island. You just need to get a Cook Islands drivers license! 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.
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.
