Cook Islands in December?

Hi,

I might spend some time in NZ in December but would like to combine the trip with some Pacific Island.

How bad is it really?
Thanks!

I assume they are hired from the big posh hotels, but we aren't staying in one of them, can a non resident hire them?

Bora Bora/ Moorea

We will visit French Polynesia next March for 9 days. What would your suggestion be to do in that 9 days? Is it worth it to buy a ticket to Bora Bora or is Moorea as beautiful?
Any suggestions on nice diving spots over there? And costs?

Thanks a lot

Camping in New Caledonia

Hi

Do I need to have my own tent to camp in New Caledonia or do the campsites have their own tents included in the rate ? I couldn´t find this information neither on LP guidebook nor on the NC tourism office websites.
