If you're looking for a South Seas idyll, check out the Cook Islands. This tiny nation, made up of 15 islands in the heart of Polynesia, is a lot like Hawaii was 50 years ago, with a low-key pace and charm.
This week-long Islands in the Sun tour includes round-trip airfare and visits to two main islands in the chain, Aitutaki and Rarotonga. Ride a scooter around Rarotonga, spend an afternoon in a hammock on Aitutaki, and snorkel in crystal clear waters surrounding both islands.
Dates: Through March 31
Price: From $3,429 per person, double occupancy. Includes round-trip airfare from LAX and air transfers between islands, beach-side accommodations (two nights in Aitutaki, three nights in Rarotonga), breakfasts and airport transfers.
