Big island in 5 nights

Big island in 5 nights

I know the big island is supposed to be, well big but my wife and 11 yr only have 5 nights to spare exploring it this june .

Our main focus will be the volcano region for 2 days and a resort , beach ,snorkelling the other 3 or so

Would it be worth flying into Kona - staying on the west coast in a resort then driving down to the volcano and flying back out of Hilo?

We have a high budget so money is not the problem only time.

Assuming that's the way you wish to break up your nights, I would fly into Kona and stay on the Kohala Coast some place and just make the drive over to the Hilo/Volcano side for the two nights. Enjoying the drive over to the other side of the island is half the fun for a first time visitor, many good places to stop and visit or view along the way.
