Map of Cook Islands

The population of an average provincial town peoples an area the size of a sub-continent.

Although these friendly Polynesians share the same language, their islands are very different.

Even with 50,000 foreigners a year visiting the capital island, Rarotonga, the Cook Islands have not been prostituted to tourism.

Urban dwellers may well be in for a shock here. The pace is slow, and you can forget about hailing a cab.

Oh to have lived on the islands in innocence, before the arrival of the Europeans. Did the Maori migrations to New Zealand start from Rarotonga?
