The center of Rarotonga is a mass of peaks and ridges, closely thatched with dense jungle.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Cook Islands Cultural Village and St Joseph's Cathedral. Step out of the city life by going to Black Rock Beach and Titikaveka Beach. There's much more to do: sample the tasty concoctions at Matutu Brewery, learn about winemaking at Koteka Winery, look for gifts at Perfumes of Rarotonga, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Cook Island Christian Church (CICC).

To find photos, where to stay, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Rarotonga trip planner .

Getting from Aitutaki to Rarotonga by flight takes about 1.5 hours. Expect a daytime high around 29°C in August, and nighttime lows around 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
