Thinking of going on the Mountain Riders Sunrise Bike Tour, the day after we arrive, figure early pick-up (ie 2-3am)won't be too hard as we haven't adjusted to island time change. Anyways, reviews seem good and bad. We have three kids, aged 16, 14 and 11. Do you feel they will be okay on this tour? Will bikes be the appropriate size for them? Any opinions or helpful tips greatly appreciated. Thxs!!!
I am visiting here in May to explore the possibility of living there permanently for a few years. I know there is more rain on this side of the island and it is windier also danger of tsunamis. From my research I believe that the rain is mainly in the late night hours and early morning. Is this mostly true? I know apartment rentals are also less pricey than the western side. I would appreciate any and all input, thoughts and ideas. I will also be checking out the western side.
I have read it is a good idea to drive straight to the pools, then do the road in reverse. I don't know if this is a stupid question, but will I still be able to use the Road to Hana CD? Or will it be complicated, I don't want to miss anything.
I am going to either Hilo or Kona next month for a week to eight days and will be renting a car while there. The purpose of my trip is to take in all that I can and also since I am considering moving there I will also looking at apartments.
How is the island for getting around in a series of day trips using either Hilo or Kona as the base?
I'm wondering if I"m able to fit all of this in, in one day. I'll be staying in Kona but would like to drive the Hamakua Coast, 4 mile scenic route and see Akaka Falls. I also would like to see Hiilawe Falls and Waipi'o Valley. Last stop would be Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and the Black Sand Beach. I know it's 2 hr drive from Kona to Hilo. Any information would be great.
Next month I will be spending one week on Maui and one week on Big Island.
Since I have limited time, I would like to do as many different things.
So I was thinking about planning a trip to Haleakala volcano park on Maui, and the week after to the volcano park on Big Island.
Now I am wondering: Are those 2 different experiences? Or would I only do one? In case of you recommend me to do just one, which one?
Also: Any other "Can't miss"-things to do: feel free to give many tips!
Thanks a lot!!
