2 Days in Sao Miguel

I will have 2 full days in Sao Miguel in mid May, and would love recommendations on how to use our time. I would love to hike if possible, would like to see the "don't miss" places on the island. I have seen Lisa mentioned on several posts as a guide. If someone has info on her/company, can you send me her info? What did she do? Also need recommendation for place to stay. Preferably in an area that is walkable to places to eat/shop/tour. Would you recommend a local bus for getting around and visiting the island on our own, or is it better to hire a guide? thanks for any input.

"Would you recommend a local bus for getting around and visiting the island on our own" with only 2 days no. The island isn't big but isn't also that small and the bus schedules are designed for local needs not tourists.

Since you got only a couple of days to explore the island, I suggest hiring a guide for the first day for some of the "must sees", and the second day, to hike and just take in the atmosphere. A good and not demanding hike would be the trail leading to the Lagoa de Sete Cidades, where I think you'd get the most scenic views (the ocean on one side, the hills or essentially the rim of the volcano, and the lakes) -- you could spare a morning for this.
