Kia Orana!  Halfway between Hawaii and New Zealand you’ll find the 15 islands that make up the little paradise of the Cook Islands.  The islands exude an aura of freedom with their crystal blue waters, secluded white sandy beaches, not a single building taller than a coconut tree, warm weather year-round and authentic, friendly locals. At just 8 hours from Los Angeles, on the same timezone as Hawaii, and just 30 minutes from landing to any beach on the main island of Rarotonga, you can ease right into island life seamlessly... and love a little paradise.
