The Cook Island offers a wonderful refuge for honeymooners and explorers searching for a great escape. However, that doesn’t mean you need to spend a fortune to go here. Situated in the South Pacific Ocean — arranged between French Polynesia and American Samoa — these 15 groups of little islands are regularly called the Pacific Ocean’s trick of the trade.
So if you plan on spending your honeymoon or vacation in this wonderful country, we have prepared an itinerary that you can follow.
How to Get to Cook Island
If you are from the United States, you can book a flight with Air New Zealand, which has a direct flight to Rarotonga (RAR). From New Zealand, you can easily hop on flights from Rarotonga to other islands with Air Rarotonga.
• Overnight trip into Rarotonga with Air New Zealand: This gives you an entire day to explore the island and view some sights. Make it a point to affirm registration time at your lodging.
• Visit the Muri Beachcomber, which offers relaxed access with a shower, in addition to full admittance to the property’s offices until 12pm registration time. You can enjoy the early daytime kayaking around the tidal pond and rest in your room by 11am, just in time for check-in.
• Stay 3-4 nights in Rarotonga. Don’t ignore Rarotonga. We cherished it the same amount of (if not more) than Aitutaki.
• Make a quick trip to Aitutaki with Air Rarotonga. Make sure you get a seat by the window for this 30-minute flight!
• Stay for 3-6 evenings on Aitutaki: To enjoy Aitutaki, you will need at least 3 days to savor its beauty. We suggest changing inns from one side of the island to the next, so you can bamboozle the two universes.
