Cook Islands vs Hawaii

Jump to last reply

We have a return trip planned for Hawaii- we had such a great time last time that we couldn't wait to get back. But after reading all the posts about the Cook Islands, and lots of online research, I am considering going to the Cooks instead. The only thing that is holding me back is- is it really going to be worth twice the flight time?
We will travel with our six year old daughter, like to stay at low profile places (considering renting a house on the beach), snorkel and explore the island. We are interested in meeting local people, eating good ethnic food and watching traditional dance.

Could someone please sell me on the Cooks? It sounds good, but our last trip was hard to beat.

Thank You!!

P.S. Playing with children seems to be our daughter's number on priority right now. Will there be opportunities the meet up with children on the beach or ?
