Cook Islands are often called the secret of the Pacific. Tourists go there for fresh pure air to wade into the cool, calm, blue lagoons, and to explore the untouched charm of the 15 stunning islands. They lie halfway between New Zealand and Hawaii, spread like fragrant petals floating across the ocean. Go on eco cycle tours or quad bike adventure tours, try mountain trekking, and party like a local on the Raro Pub Crawl Party Bus.
