Information about the Cook islands
I bought the e-version of the Lonely Planet last time we went - click here to download it.

Just remember the time differences - particularly when flying from Sydney and Auckland as you cross the date line and it gets very confusing as you fly back in time and arrive a whole day BEFORE you depart.

Customs and Imports
It's an island so although plenty of fresh fish, if you like certian foods, it may be easier to bring in your own food . Booze is incredibly cheap at the airport so buy your duty free ONCE you have landed and not before.
What you can bring in.........
No duty is levied on clothing or personal effects (including sports equipment).
In addition, each visitor may bring the following items, free of duty, into the Cook Islands:
200 cigarettes or up to ½ pound (1 kg) of tobacco or up to 50 cigars,
2 liters of spirit or wine or 4½ litres of beer.
Goods with total value of up to NZ$250 are not open to duties, however goods in excess of NZ$250 are liable to duty.
Fruits and plants are not allowed into the country.
You are permitted to bring frozen food, canned food and vacuum packed products. These must be declared to Customs on arrival. If not declared, Customs have the right to confiscate any items/products
