When to Go to the Cook Islands

December to June is summer in the Cook Islands. Bright sunny mornings, higher humidity, tropical quick showers to cool things down and perhaps the best time to get airfare and resort deals from Feb-May. Typically Dec/Jan is when Cookies living in Australia return home, so there are great deals on resorts, but book early for flights. February is the month of love, a perfect time to get a deal, get married or renew vows. See whales late Jun.

July is ‘mid-winter’, lower humidity, dry sunny days and low dew point. It is also the peak season for Kiwi’s, so book early to avoid disappointment. September is the biggest month for arrivals on the islands. See whales Jul-Oct. Lots of Cook Islands traditions, festivals and sporting events happen in Nov so there is always lot’s happening.
