Geography of the Cook Islands
The Cook Islands can be divided into two groups: the Southern Cook Islands and the Northern Cook Islands.
Rarotonga is the most populous island of the Cook Islands, with a population of 13,095, out of the country's total population of 17,794. The Cook Islands' Parliament buildings and international airport are on Rarotonga. Because it is the most populous island, Cook Islanders may often be referred to as Rarotongan, but they may come from one of the other 14 islands in the group, such as Aitutaki or Mangaia. Rarotonga is a very popular tourist destination with many resorts, hotels and motels.
