>Years ago someone once posted that they found a cockroach in their rental car.<

The most disgusting experience I've ever had with a rental car anywhere was on the Big Island. We are local (live on Oahu) and were staying in Waikoloa for a weekend. From picking up the car throughout the day there were no apparent problems. That evening after dinner when we got back to the car and I opened the door, I saw a ton of little roaches scurrying all over the interior. It makes sense that we didn't see them earlier in the day - roaches will typically come out at night. However, to see so many in the car really skeeved me out, especially since we had been driving around with them all day without any idea.

When we returned the car, my BIL mentioned to the car rental employee about the roaches - and he just got a little bit of a rolled eye and "This is Hawaii". As a local, I know all about roaches, but that many in the rental car means they were not cleaning their cars properly.

Now as a caveat, I will say that the car rental agencies here usually do try to clean the cars and that was the only time I've had such a problem.

I've had cockroaches in Kauai rental cars several times. Yuck. But I prefer roaches in paradise to a bug-free car in Nashville! ;-)

I agree with Weke re: the Kalalau trail to the waterfall. It started pouring and there were suddenly streams where it had been bone dry. I slipped--face down into a rock. IMO, this trail is incredibly dangerous and the worst part is that people who are not serious hikers try it because they're in Kauai--and the trail is iconic. There are countless gorgeous trails in Kauai that are much safer.
