Best way to see the volcano -- stay in condos, or vacation house? Or in the park? Or travel back and forth from Hilo? hoping to go towards the end of the month. Mom, Grandma and 24 yr old.
Staying in Waikaloa timeshare for a week, then 2 days undetermined location when adult son arrives on 23rd. then 5 days at Castle Hilo Hawaiian, until 30th or sooner.
Son leaves Feb. 2, so we have to see Volcano between Jan.23rd and 2/2/07. He also would like to rent a surf board -- if there is any area that is better for less experienced surfer, or decent wave area where there are lessons? Nearby accommodations to that kind of beach area? We do not know the best area we could locate for a few days to let him have his surfing fix.
Our first time visit to Big Island, and just recently started reading these boards - but have to leave Sunday am early on 1/14/07, so trying to get a condensed idea of how to spend these weeks.
Any ideas I should consider?
