Cook Islands: Only Couples and Honeymooners?

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to plan a trip with my mom for her 70th birthday and we've heard wonderful things about the Cook Islands but are still going back and forth on whether to just travel further and visit New Zealand.

Our only concern is most of the information we've found on CI seems to focus on honeymooners and couples, even to the point that a lot of resorts don't accept children under 12. This is probably a totally silly question, but has anyone traveled there with an older parent and is it a good destination if you're not a couple? Will my mom and I feel completely out of place?

Thank you in advance! :)
