Why It’s a Deal A recent Kayak search shows the lowest round-trip airfare between L.A. and Rarotonga starts from $1,264 in early April (Fiji Airways). Add to that $618 per person including taxes for five nights at the Rarotonga Edgewater Resort, and you’re already spending $1,882 on airfare and accommodations alone. For $483 less, this travel package gives you all the same perks, plus complimentary use of snorkeling equipment, access to daily activities, round-trip airport transfers, daily breakfast, and covers all taxes and fees.
