The Cook Islands consist of 15 islands with a total population of approximately 19,000, scattered over some 2 million square kilometres of the Pacific Ocean. They lie in the centre of the Polynesian Triangle, flanked to the west by The Kingdom of Tonga and the Samoas and to the east by Tahiti and the islands of French Polynesia.

The Polynesians are unique and friendly.  They have their own language and government and enjoy a vigorous and diverse culture with significant differences between each island. Despite some 100,000 visitors a year to the capital island, Rarotonga, the Cook Islands are largely unspoiled by tourism. They offer a rare opportunity for people from the cities of the world to experience a lifestyle exuding warmth, happiness and respect.
