9) Buy street food
Well, it’s not really street food – but road food.
The main road that circles Rarotonga is called Ara Tapu, and while it is sealed for its entire 32 kilometres, the speed limit is never more than 50kmh, and quite often a lot slower than that. But that allows plenty of time to spot food stalls and stop. They offer everything from fresh fruit and vegetables, to coconuts, cakes and pastries, and the doughnuts that Cook Islanders seem to love and have for sale seemingly everywhere. Stop to try them – after all, you are on holiday and you can watch your weight when you get back home.
