Fifteen islands in the South Pacific Ocean make up the Cook Islands: a self-governing country closely tied to New Zealand. The Polynesian lifestyle on these islands – a calm and carefree way of living, with a backdrop of blue skies, white sand and warm seas – keeps travellers booking flights to the Cook Islands every year.

Indeed, the country thrives on tourism. It 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 stop and relax before heading off on snorkelling adventures, hiking the mountains or simply sunbathing on the white sand beaches.

The weather in the Cook Islands is pleasant year-round, but it’s likely to rain often. However, this shouldn’t deter travelers from booking Cook Islands flights. The weather is warm and sunny and the rain, although imminent, is not terribly harsh.
