Cook Islands Health and Safety
Health and Safety
The Cook Islands are one of the safest travel destinations in the world. However, we recommend you observe the same precautions with your personal safety and your possessions as you would in any other country or at home.
Keeping Your Possessions Safe
Follow these commonsense precautions to help keep your possessions safe:
o Always lock your accommodation or vehicle and keep windows secure when unattended, and at night.
o Hand your room key to reception rather than carrying it with you.
o Never leave valuables in parked vehicles.
o Store valuables securely, ideally in a safe at your accommodation.
o Never leave bags, backpacks, wallets or cameras unattended in any public place, especially airports.
o If any of your possessions are stolen or valuable items misplaced, advise local police as soon as possible.
The emergency telephone numbers in the Cook Islands are:
Ambulance & Hospital 998
Medical attention is easily accessible at Rarotonga's local hospital where there is a range of medical and dental services available 24 hours a day. There are also several General Practitioners on the island who can attend to your non-emergency needs. They can be located through the local phone book. Various pharmacies are available for prescription medicine
Aitutaki also has a hospital and emergency services.
o No vaccinations are required to enter The Cook Islands.
