Plan of "Attack" for 4 nights, 5 days on the Big Island in February??

Jump to last reply

We will have only 4 days to do the Big Island in February ending our 18 night trip to the Islands.
Background: (Reservations are set and cannot be cancelled or changed)
1) MAUI - 7 nights staying in Maui Sunset condo - Kihei
2) KAUAI - 3 nights on N Coast in condo at Sealodge - then 4 nights in S. Kauai at Kiahuna Plantation
3) 4 nights on Big Island - FLY HOME FROM HILO AT 9:30 p.m. on 5th day

QUESTIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS FOR BIG ISLAND:

1) We definitely want to do Volcanoes Natl Park. Am thinking last night in Volcanoes -
arriving in afternoon - seeing the glow that evening, sleep, hike and sightsee the
entire next day in the park and then drive to Hilo Airport for 9:30 p,m. flight. Is this adequate
time for the park?
2) Should we fly into Kona and out of Hilo? or Just fly in and out of Hilo and concentrate on Hamakua
Coast, Waipio Valley, Waimea, Volcanoes, and Hilo area?
WILL NOT BE INTERESTED IN DRIVING TO MAUNA KEA (altitude sickness)
3) Is the Kohala Coast "not to be missed"?
4) Where should we sleep the first 3 nights? Price range UNDER $200. and prefer UNDER $175.?
5) To do a Coffee Plantation tour, would it be better to fly into Kona?
6) Opinions on time at the Parker Ranch near Waimea? Horseback in Waipio Valley?
7) Will have Beach time in Kihei and Poipu - so do we need to do beaches of Wailoloa Resort?
(I cannot snorkel - claustrophobic)
THANKS FOR ALL OPINIONS!
