Travelers booking Cook Island flights and accommodations keep the country afloat — tourism is the leading economic industry, followed by offshore banking, pearls, marine and fruit exports. The country welcomes on average 90,000 visitors a year to the capital island of Rarotonga. It’s here that tourists experience a wave of calm and friendliness before heading off on snorkeling adventures, hiking the mountains or the trolling the white sand beaches.

Cook Islands Travel Information

Shopping: Spending a Saturday morning at the Punangh Nui market is the perfect way to mix sight-seeing and splurging. One of a kind clothing, house wares, and bedding is at your disposal, and although these items are already steeply discounted, the vendors are willing to bargain even lower. The market might be packed with people, but since you saved money with a cheap flight to the Cook Islands, you can spend time and splurge a little in Punangh Nui.

Cook Islands Christian Church: Even for those who don’t associate with a particular religion, an experience in the Cook Islands Christian Church is a memorable one. Originated by the London Missionary association in the 1800s,the islanders reformed the faith and in 1852 begun a following that has now reached 18,000 people. Gospel-focused and community-based, these ceremonies are certain to make anyone a believer in the beauty of the Cook Islands.

Food: For a vibrant and satisfying banquet, dig in to some of Cook Island’s most famous natural resources. Sea cucumber, found in shallow ocean water, can be used to cook with lime and banana. While handling the creature might seem abhorrent, rest easy knowing that once thrown back into the sea, sea cucumbers re-grow and continue to live. For a sweet and healthy breakfast to fill you up before your Cook Islands flight back home, ask locals to help you dissect coconuts and papayas to concoct a wholesome serving.
