Top 5 Things to do in RAROTONGA Cook Islands

If you're planning a trip to Rarotonga Cook Islands, then you might be wondering what are the top things to do in Raro. This video is here to help you out :)

On this episode we take you along to all the great activities we did during our week long stay in Rarotonga Cook Islands.

Number one on this Top 5 Things to do in Rarotonga video is doing some fun water activities. Luckily we were able to rent some kayaks for free from Pacific Resort which was the place where we were staying. We had a blast paddling our kayaks from our main island all around the lagoon in Muri.

But if your hotel doesn't have kayaks for hire you might want to check out The Dive Centre - The Big Fish for some snorkeling in Raro instead.
Address: Are Tapu Aroa Beach Rarotonga, Cook Islands
For $15 each, we hired some snorkels and had an amazing time looking at all the tropical fishes.

Yen's favourite activity during our stay was visiting:
Te Vara Nui Village
Address: Te Vara Nui, Ara Tapu, Cook Islands
We had a delicious buffet of local Cook Island food as well as an amazing live cultural show. The dancing and energy at Te Vara Nui is fantastic and something we really enjoyed. Definitely a highly recommended experience from both of us if you're holidaying in Rarotonga.

You can also check out Rarotonga town centre. Along the way you can pick up some local clothes and eat at some popular food spots.

To check out the food stops in full you'll need to wait for our Best Eats Rarotonga episode which comes out next week :)

You can also visit the Punanga Nui market while you're in Rarotonga's town centre. Or, if you are staying near the lagoon at Muri, conveniently there is another night market there. The Muri night market dishes cost around about $15 each and you can also expect to pay around $5 for a drink but you have to go early as food tends to sell out fast at Muri night market.

Finally if you're in Rarotonga you have got to do one of the famous treks, whether it is The Needle or Raemaru. They are both spectacular.

We opted for Raemaru Trek as it was a lot shorter. The incline was pretty challenging especially after a few days of rain and so it is best to be careful while scaling the mountain. Also bring plenty of insect repellent as there are a lot of mosquitoes.

We hope you enjoy this Rarotonga series! Check out our other 2 videos here:

3 Unique Rarotonga Tours (Epic Things To Do!) | Cook Islands Ep. 6 of 7

We're nearing the end of our Cook Islands travels, so for this Rarotonga vlog we're mixing things up - here's some unique things to do! ???? Learn how to edit video with Dane — ⬇ More Below ⬇

Welcome back to the Cook Islands, it's our 6th vlog in this series and only one more to go from Rarotonga - man, what a holiday it's been! There's plenty of things to do in Rarotonga, but understandably a lot of the activities, tours and things to do end up being the same just recycled. Like we mention in the video, that's to be expected and we love laxxing in amazing accommodation, exploring the island, snorkelling, visiting the night markets, tasting the food and touring the lagoon — BUT there is so much more!

So for this trip back to Rarotonga we really wanted to pick a few unique things to do, finding some activities that may not be on everyones to do list or at the top of the tours to book. What we found were 3 epic adventures we wanted to share.

Check out the sea scooter safari with Ariki Adventures here — 

Hang out with locals and crack into an island buffet here —

Stand up paddle board, catch a sunset, race some crabs and watch a fire show with KiteSUP here — 

We were hosted by Cook Islands Tourism to assist in making this travel series in Aitutaki and Rarotonga, but as always we have full editorial control over what we film, what we say, and how we share the experience with you in these vlogs. There’s loads of incredible info about the Cook Islands here for your own holiday —

New Zealand is an incredibly beautiful country with so much to offer — but it's a lot larger than what you'd expect! We're producing the Ultimate New Zealand Travel Guide, a hub full of Kiwi knowledge to help you on your next adventures here. Take a look —

Where to eat in Rarotonga, Cook Islands

This is the final video in our 3-part Rarotonga vlog series! It's safe to say that food in Rarotonga really exceeded our expectations. The fish was so fresh it felt like it was caught only a few hours before it reached our plates. Check out this episode to find out all the great local spots that we managed to hit up during our time in the Cook Islands.

We're sure there were a bunch of other fantastic spots that we missed out on, but guess that means we'll just need to make another trip back to Raro one day :) If you're from Rarotonga or you've been there before, let us know where else we should try next time we visit the Cook Islands.

Here's a list of all the places we managed to cover in this Rarotonga food vlog though:

1. Charlies Cafe and Beach Hire - Awesome lil spot. You can either get a mean feed or rent a kayak and snorkel to venture out into the beach which is right next door. Their sandwiches are huge!
Address: Ara Tapu, Takitumu District, Cook Islands
Hours: Monday - Saturday 11am–9pm

2. Trader Jacks - Just the thought of this place still brings smiles to our faces. The crayfish tail we had was so good we came here a second time and ordered the same dish. Peter also got the ika mata here (not shown in the video unfortunately) but believe us, it was amazing!
Address: Ara Tapu, Avarua District, Cook Islands
Hours: Monday - Thursday 11am - 11pm
Friday 11am–3am
Saturday 11am–12am

3. The Waterline Restaurant and Beach Bar - One of the most beautifully located restaurants we went to during our stay in Rarotonga. Right next to the beach and in a charming wooden beach hutt. Also houses the best pina colada Peter has ever had.
Address: Arorangi, Rarotonga, Cook Islands
Lunch - Tuesday - Friday 11:30am - 2pm
Dinner - Tuesday - Sunday from 6pm till late

4. The Mooring Fish Cafe - We heard from our Cook Island friends that this is where locals from Rarotonga go to get a great lunch.
Address: Avana Fishing Club near Ngatangiia District, Cook Islands
Hours: Monday - Saturday 10:30am–3:30pm

5. Bite Time Cafe - This place surprised us with the quality of the ika mata and tuna. We ended up eating here after the Raemaru trek which you can see the whole video in:

Address: Avarua District, Cook Islands
Hours: Monday - Saturday 8:30am–9pm

We hope you've enjoyed this Rarotonga series of ours! Be sure to watch our other 2 videos we made about Raro if you haven't seen them yet :)

5. Black Rock Beach - The spectacular black volcanic rocks are surrounded by amazingly white sand, making this a perfect spot for a day at the beach.

9. Highland Paradise (guilty rocks) - Cook Island cultural center, where you can learn about the Cook Island Maori culture and history. The guilty rocks are particularly interesting, as those who committed adultery where forced to carry the very large and heavy stones a certain distance.

10. sunset at Titikaveka Beach - During the day a great spot for snorkeling, and in the evening one of the best places to watch the often spectacular sunset!
Best stay at: goo.gl/W2zzHY

Have You Heard Of This Paradise? Arriving in Rarotonga, Cook Islands

Welcome to the Cook Islands! Today we take a flight to Rarotonga with Jetstar, arrive at the most chill airport ever and head to our hotel resort on Muri Beach, Pacific Resort Rarotonga. It is definitely...⬇ More Below ✈ Everything you need to know about making money online is in our 220 page guide —

Rarotonga is the most chilled place we've ever been. Full stop. Rarotonga is the largest island of the Cook Islands and where we'll be spending the next week exploring!

First step was jumping on our Jetstar flight to Rarotonga from Auckland, arriving at the airport it was clear how special this trip was going to be. The people of Rarotonga are so friendly, warm, personable and welcoming — even so late in the evening!

Special thanks to Jetstar for helping us get to Rarotonga and show off this beautiful place!

Theres lots of Rarotonga hotels and resorts, but we knew Muri beach was a spot we wanted to be close to. Then we found Pacific Resort Rarotonga and instantly knew it would be a winner! Our flight arrived while it was already dark though, so we weren't initially able to see how beautiful the hotel resort setup was until the next day... as you would have seen, we were pretty bloody happy with it!

Pacific Resort Rarotonga was kind enough to allow us to film their resort and take us out on a lagoon tour while hosting us, if you're looking at a trip to Rarotonga definitely check it out, it's the perfect spot on Muri Beach —

Luxury Rarotonga Accommodation! (Muri Beach & Night Markets) | Cook Islands Ep. 5 of 7

Rarotonga accommodation options — there’s resorts, holiday homes and hotels all over, but our favourite accommodation in the Cook Islands is this luxury villa on Muri Beach: ⬇ More Below ⬇

Welcome back to the Cook Islands and our 5th episode of 7 in this series of travel vlogs. We’ve tackled Aitutaki for the most part so far, so it’s time for Rarotonga and hunting out some luxury accommodation RIGHT on Muri Beach, the award-winning Te Vakaroa villas.

As we mentioned above, the cool thing about Rarotonga is how the accommodation mix has changed in recent years. There’s now some great holiday homes (some with pools even), cheaper back packing options, villas like this one and less expensive, and full blown family resort styles too. There’s an option for everyone. But if you’re wanting luxury, beach front living and proximity to walk and explore check out Te Vakaroa Villas. We actually spotted these villas last time we were in Rarotonga and made a note to check them out next time, safe to say it was worth looking into!

We were hosted by Cook Islands Tourism to assist in making this travel series in Aitutaki and Rarotonga, but as always we have full editorial control over what we film, what we say, and how we share the experience with you in these vlogs. There’s loads of incredible info about the Cook Islands here for your own holiday —

Food Of Rarotonga — It's Delicious! | Cook Islands Vlog

Food in Rarotonga, is it good? Expensive? In this vlog we try a bunch of food, visit a few restaurants and the Muri Night Markets. In the Cook Islands Ika Mata is...⬇ More Below ✈ This is how we travel non-stop —

We're sad to say this is our 4th and final vlog from Rarotonga — it's sad to say goodby to the Cook Islands! Next time we definitely need to visit more than just Rarotonga, the Cook Islands have lots more to discover that we haven't yet seen or shown. Before leaving food had to take priority though, so in this one we spend the day eating our way around the islands and hunting out Ika Mata.

Over our week in Rarotonga we got lots of recommendations for restaurants to visit, local food we had to try and some cravings of our own. Ika Mata is a seafood dish that was at the top of that list, but finding it fresh, on the right day it's available or not sold out already was actually really hard! Fortunately we got a taste for it and also had some friends make us Ika Mata (that we didn't film sadly) and it's safe to say this needs to be at the top of the list for best food to get in Rarotonga.

The other food we hunted out were all tasty and all up, considering the sizes and pretty little servings we eat these days, $55 NZD / $33 USD / £26 was enough to feed us for the day happily. In saying that, the fish curry was legitness and if the lines hadn't got so large when we ate the first plate we totally would have bought another one, even if we couldn't finish it.
