MY COOK ISLANDS
"Our people are naturally hospitable and friendly.  You don't often see an islander without a welcoming smile on their face.  And why shouldn't we smile?  We have so many things to smile about."

Captain Bligh called AITUTAKI a "charming little spot" when he discovered it just days before the mutiny on the Bounty.   And it's still one of the most beautiful places on the planet, with a lagoon so blue you'd think it had been painted that colour and a hotel resort which has been voted best in the world.
