Visit the lava lake up in Volcano National Park, which may or may not be there at Hale Ma'uma'u and maybe you’ll experience one of Big Island’s many commonly occurring earthquakes. There’s even a vineyard nearby! The volcano may not be very active when you visit, so plan ahead!

Watch the sunset from Mauna Loa and explore the sinuous networks of lava tubes and caves that run for miles underneath the surface of the island.

Visit Waipio Valley and imagine the taro farmers of yore.

Just minutes away from the black sand beach, Kehena, there are smoothie and fruit vendors that pop up on sunny days. Hikes along stark, black lava rock coast lines and lowland rainforests make this area unique. Many agricultural endeavors also go on in the area, worth exploring, including spear and reel fishing. Ecstatic Dancing is a popular happening in the area, as well as a variety of festivals.

It is recommended that you rent a car at the airport in Hilo, though there is a bus that swings by at the front of the neighborhood. A bike is also a very pleasant way to travel... the red road, or highway 130, is no longer red but is a beautiful road to bike along. The roads are somewhat narrow and winding around the area.

Also, Hawaii charges a 13.5% Transient Accommodation Tax and 4.712% General Excise Tax. This should already be reflected in your payment breakdown.
