After an overnight flight we arrived in Rarotonga at 7.00 in the morning to temperatures already in the low 20s. We spent our first three nights staying in a lovely apartment in the east of the island at Muri Beach.
What were on the whole a relaxing few days spent snorkelling and browsing around the main town of Avarua were rudely …

Well scootering around , its not a bad thing, although very hard to stick to 40 kmhr,dam it!

TravelPod Member ReviewsAito Apartments Muri
We stayed at four separate places whilst in the Cook Islands and Aito punched way above its weight when it came to value for money.
