From what I read, you should break up your trip and stay at different places during your stay on the island. We're planning on going to the big island in Sept. for about a week and then over to Kuaui for another week. Thinking of starting in Kona and making our way to Hilo through Volcano.
We like activities like snorkeling, hiking, kayaking, sight-seeing, etc. So suggstions for hotels, BBs are welome!
How many nights should we stay in Volcano to see the park or surrounding areas? Any other interesting things to see in that part of the island?
Is there more to see and do in Hilo than Kona that match our interests?
