We are a family of four traveling with another family of four to Hawaii for 14 days from mid to end December. We have 4 kids with us ages 6-10. We want to visit the Big Island, Maui and Kuaui. Could you please suggest an itinerary and any must dos. I have been reading up and it all looks very confusing and a lot to process. Any suggestions on villas/B&BS and hotels/resorts that are good. We are not too much into water sports. We will probably do a boat trip that includes snorkeling/ whale watching and maybe small island hopping. We love scenic places but cannot do much hiking (short walks are fine) because of the kids.
Also, what is the best way - on the Big Island we were thinking of staying at one of the mega resorts for maybe 2-3 days then at a villa type place on the Hilo side for another 2-3 days then move on to either Maui or Kauai. How many days in each of the islands is good?
Thanks so much!
