    That add is just the cutest. Those boys did a terrific job and I love the auntie, the old guy, the science teacher, the guy on the motorcycle and the dancers. Really great.

    Nova Scotia’s Lawrencetown Beach and the Cook Islands are opposites – Cook Islands are warm and tropical, if you dived into an ice cold Pina Colada that’s the temperature of the water right now on the beach here in Nova Scotia. But both places are friendly, both have great seafood and hermit crabs and both are a little piece of Heaven. I would like to see how our southern cousins live.

    So beautiful…….I do believe my life would be better, having visited this magnificent, lush tropical paradise. Thank you, for sharing the beauty of the island.

    Escaping the cold Northern Canadian winter to enjoy the sun kissed beaches of the gorgeous Cook Islands would be a dream come true! There’s nothing more enticing than a tropical island paradise. These islands are particularly appealing to a Survivor fan who saw how beautiful the landscape was and envisions experiencing them first hand.

    I recently bought a spinner suitcase (not yet used)…I’ll have it packed to go!!!

    Went for our honeymoon and never seen any place better since then. Still craving the breakfast of papaya with coconut sprinkles/lime juice with scrambled eggs/toast and Aitutaki coffee we had at the plantation cafe. And the lagoon snorkelling… Wish we could go again!

  17. Lynn Anderson

    My sister has been there 5 times now.
    She tells me continuously how gorgeous that it is and that I have to make it a priority.
    Winning this would obviously make it all possible.


    Seeing the word Polynesian just brought me back to when i was 10 and had to do a project on this beautiful place!
    Thanks for the memory!
    It’s so beautiful, it’s like the best dream ever 🙂

    So much history; so much beauty. Traveling there would be like visiting paradise on Earth

  22. Kathleen Brookfield

    The best vacation I have ever had was in the Cook Islands in 2000. I would go back in a shot and recommend to anyone for relaxation on the pristine beaches, exercise swimming, snorkeling or cycling round the island, eating exotic food. Plus guided tours giving history of islanders.

  23. Travis

    “Kia Orana”. We went to “The Cooks” in 2000 and swore we were going to come back!! Well we did in 2012 with our 8 yr old daughter, what another wonderful, exciting experience we had. Our daughter loved it!!!
    It’s our go too place when we can!!! We would love to go again and see Pa, he’s a elder that gives tours up to the needle, an amazing individual!!!

    I have enjoyed your magazine Outpost and the excellent articles and the aerial photo of Cook Islands is spectacular…..Why would anyone not want to go?? I have traveled in various parts of the world and it always amazes me the wonderful experience it has been meeting peoples of different cultures and customs. It always has been a wonderful experience. I have never been to the Cook Islands and can only imagine how wonderful it would be to meet the people, enjoy the food and Island itself
