Beginners Guide to Polynesia – Rarotonga and the Southern Cook Islands

Beginners Guide to Polynesia – Rarotonga and the Southern Cook Islands

My abiding memory of Cook Islanders which many visits has never altered, is of a happy, friendly bunch of  lotus eaters in Paradise. There are 13,000 odd Cook Islanders Islands that make up the Southern Cooks but the Cooks actually extend 1500 kilometres to the small islands to the north. It is impossible not to like Cook Islanders they are so warm and friendly. They are relaxed people and enjoy life; Samoans whom I also like very much can be a little serious, whereas you get the feeling with Cook Islanders would not know what the word serious meant.
