@bridey914:  Hi, sorry for the late reply, thanks for the message, I was 20 when I went there, I started in the UK, I had flown from Aukland into Rarotonga, then a week later flew to Tahiti (Tahiti is nothing compared to the cook Islands!) 

I was there in January, had no rain, a couple of cloudy days, the rest was perfect sun.

As I had been backpacking I was staying in cheap accomodationhostels, I was at Veras beach house, 5 min walk to muri lagoonbeach but I wouldn’t go there for a honeymoon.

I have travelled alot, been to many amazing places and try not to travel to the same place twice, but, I would love to take my fiance here, I couldn’t afford to go to aitutaki, but really want to go there for the next visit, it looks lovely.

For the week I was there I met other travellers, who strangely lived within 30 minutes from my hometown, you can get a bike licence and travel around the island that way, it’s really easy to get around the island.

Did some sunset fishing with the hostel owners and other travellers, unfortunately I didn’t do much snorkelling, so can’t comment on the marine life, so if you go let me know!

All the beaches were beautiful, muri beachlagoon was so calm, great for kayaks, aroa I liked as you could float from one end to the other with the tide.

There’s a small but nice waterfall, all the local children climb up and jump off, sunsets are also lovely to see and relax with a nice drink.

We went to the church one day to experience that too.

I could have stayed longer, I hope you have a great time there, let me know what you pick for your aitutaki accomodation, have you already booked your flights?
