Day trips from Kona or move around BI

Jump to last reply

Aloha, all. I really need your input.

We are flying into Kona and we are planning to spend 5 days on the BI, then on to Oahu for a couple of days before coming home. Our plan was to stay 5 days somewhere in the Kona area. During that time we would do a day trip to the Volcanos, then another day trip to the Hilo area, mainly to see Akaka Falls and the Hawaiin Botanical Gardens just outside Hilo. The remaining time was to be spent snorkeling in the Kona coast area.

Please tell me--is it realistic to stay in Kona and do these day trips, or should we move around, perhaps spending 2 nights in Kona, 1 at VNP, 1 in Hilo, then the last night in Kona again, as we have an early morning flight to HNL?

Mahalo for any advice you can offer.
