“Living History”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2013

This hidden gem is found high in the hills behind the beach and lagoon. Surrounded by lush tropical garden that are beautifully kept, the village displays a variety of historical artefacts and buildings that were an integral part of the history and lifestyle of the Cook Islanders. A most enlightening trip that combines lunch and a display of dancing, music and history
