We want to go to the Cooks (Rarotonga & Aitutaki) - and Jan 2013 for 3 weeks seems to be the time that works.
From what we've read, this is the cyclone/bad weather period.
How much should this influence whether we go or not in January? We're not youngsters, although active, and look forward to lots of wandering around and snorkeling.
Weather - we're ok with. Dangerous weather, not so much so ;-)
Any advice appreciated.
