9) Buy street food

Marlborough Express - - TRAVEL -

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.
