First Time to Kona/Big Island with 4yr Old

Hi there,

I wanted to say thanks for reading this post, basically here is my dilema my family and I (Wife, Son and Myself) booked our first trip to Hawaii more specifically the Big Island but I am getting that sinking feeling we picked the wrong island.

This is my son's first trip to a tropical location and I want it to be a fun experience for us all. We have rented a car and we are staying at the Sheraton next week (Jan7th-14th) So I am not sure what to do really. :-(

I know there is the VNP and that is on our list but is there a walking tour that we can take and see the lava flows even with his young age?

I personally love snorkling and so where would the good places for snorkeling be? I also like to view nature in an untouched form so to speak so I think if there were some nice easy nature walks or something simular that would be ok for a 4yr old.

Anything else that you can suggested would be really really appreciated.

Thank you,
