Cook Islands Vacation Tips

We recommend that you take some New Zealand currency with you, although there is a currency exchange at the Rarotonga airport. There are 2 ATM machines in Avarua that will work with an international interact debit card. The Cook Islands are very small, so we recommend if you are travelling that far, you should check out Rarotonga and one of the other smaller islands like Aitutaki. The Cook Islands are very religious and frown upon inappropriate dress. Beachwear should not be worn in town or to restaurants. Tipping and bargaining are not customary or expected. We love the Cook Islands, call West's Travel for more info and a quote for your Cook Islands dream vacation.
