About Rarotonga, Cook Islands

Capital of the Cook Islands, Rarotonga is an exquisite slice of paradise. Only 20 miles wide and home to under 10,000 inhabitants, the island offers spectacular beauty without crowds or compromise. Visit a 19th-century trading post. Sample the delicacies at an Umukai feast. No snakes, poisonous insects, or wild animals live on Rarotonga, so your hikes are sure to be as safe as they are enjoyable.

We took the art tour conducted by a native carver from New Zealand. Very , very interesting. We saw some of his work and the stories he told on himself were fasinating.

Circle island tour a waste. The folks who did "day at the beach with snorkeling" raved about it. Beautiful beach. The shuttle bus goes to ok but not great beaches. We were there on a national holiday, so missed out on marketplace.

Best part of Rarotonga was the $3 local bus ride around the tropical island. After the bus ride we went to the open air market. We found some booths with imperfect black pearls for as low as $20. (A black pearl if a good grade is over $200.) So $20 is souvenir quality!

This is the only stop on the cruise that is not polynesian...it is a New Zealand island. This is where you should buy some things....the dollar is strong against the NZ dollar.
