Inga, we're looking at Tahiti through Costco too. Are you going to Bora Bora as well?

no, we are going to tahiti and morea. Bora Bora was too expensive for us


 


 


but i have to rave about costco travel. the customer service and prices are amazing. we did a lot of comparison shopping and research before we booked and costco was the best outlet.

Yup, they are. We've been looking all sorts of places and so far Costco has been the most reasonable. We're thinking of doing Bora Bora and Tahiti. I really want to go to Moorea too. It looks so pretty. Let me know how you like it :)

You guys are making me feel SO MUCH BETTER about this!  I just discovered Costo travel and I am obsessed...but I haven't talked to anyone else that has used it.  We are also between Fiji, Tahiti and the Cook Islands.  We aren't getting married till next summer though so they don't have the prices on the Costco website yet.  I'm just looking EXTRA early!

hey there


one my BF's went last month to the Cook Islands. She raved about it but a word of warning:  it is remote and QUIET.  It's  a get-away. It's not a developed tourist spot. So there isn't much there.


I read a big article about it in vanity Fair-  because the Cook Islands is where Fletcher Christian went after he mutiny-ed the Bounty (!)  and one thing I remember reading is it is hard to get to and supplies were dropped off;  you aren't going to find a Star bucks for sure!

We booked our photographers Thursday night and they had pictures of the Cook Islands on their blog.  After talking to them about their experience they have us convinced!!!  They said that it was even better than their trip to Bora Bora.  So I think we are going to wait until Costco Travel posts their summer 2009 specials and then we will be booking our trip.  I'm so excited!!!  If you would like to see some pictures on their blog here is the link http://socalsunshineproductions.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2008-05-25T19%3A57%3A00-07%3A00&max-results=7
