Comfortable and inexpensive way to see a bit of Rarotonga . The bus circumnavigated the island every hour . You can go clockwise or anti clockwise on a hop on hop off plan.

This service is a great way to get around the island. But expect to be bounced around and fear for the integrity of the bus. Also, don't expect the bus to be on time.....they run on island time.

Great way to get around the island, this bus stops where you want it too. Only down side is it can sometimes be a little late but all in all easy and cheap way to get around :)
