Is air conditioning needed?

My family is looking to travel to either Maui (westside) or the Big Island (around Kona) and we wanted to know if we should be looking for air conditioning in our condo since we'll be going in late July....we're from Louisiana and are used to hot humid weather which makes us leary to go without it....thanks for any help.

I've never been to Louisiana, but Hawaii is very hot and humid. I love that kind of weather - here in CA its hot but very dry. I think you may be more comfortable with the AC... especially when sleeping.

You will probably want AC. It depends on the location and the design of the building. If the condo is situated where the trade winds can reach it, and if it's designed to get nice cross-ventilation through the windows, you can sometimes do without AC. But I wouldn't count on it. West Maui and Kona Hawaii are both hot, sunny places, especially in July.
