We're coming in late January and only have 4-5 days on the big island. We are going to fly into Hilo and spend 2 nights there including seeing the Volcano National Park.
We then have a couple more days before flying out of Kona (back to Honolulu). We're trying to figure out the best places to go and stay as we have never been to Hawaii before. We will have a rental car and have no problem driving from place to place but would love to see as much of the Western coast as possible from one hotel. Our main goals include snorkelling and beautiful scenery as well as reasonably priced accommodation.
Thanks for your tips!
