Go slow in the Cook Islands

There is no better vacation than one where time seems to stand still, allowing visitors to wring every last drop of enjoyment from their allotted break. In the Cook Islands, chilling out is a way of life, and it doesn’t take long for visitors to sync into the rhythm of island life.

It is easy to slow down on the Cook Islands; even on the main island of Rarotonga you can’t drive faster than 50 km/h and there is not one, single, solitary traffic light. So when you drive around the 32-kilometre Ara Tapu (Sacred Road) around the island or on the Ara Metua (Ancient Road) that runs inland, you can relax and just take in the scenery rather than watching it zip by in a blur.

Fly over to Aitutaki which has one of the most spectacular lagoons in the world as well as a plethora of fantastic resorts in which to enjoy every single second of your day.
