The precipitation is somewhat higher during the southern summer from November to April, but even then, the rain often comes in heavy downpours followed by bright sunshine. Rarotonga's towering volcanic peaks tend to catch the rain clouds and the other islands, such as Aitutaki, are much drier. The best holiday weather conditions are from July to September, and those are the busiest months. My personal favorite time is either May or October, but in all honesty, any time of the year is good! We have the same weather as Hawaii basically just opposite seasons, so if you like Hawaii in say December,/January, then you would like it here in July/August. December/January here are hot and humid and the water is lovely and warm, evenings are warm and pleasant and everyone enjoys the tropical downpours that come and cool things off.
