Very excited about my first trip to Kauai, coming up in April. We're sure we want to stay in the north and expect to like it the best - we love nature and lush greenery. On the other hand, it seems the Waimea Canyon is a can't miss attraction - we tend to be a bit lazy and slow to get going on vacation so the thought of driving there from Princeville and back in a day is daunting. As well, the thought of packing and moving mid-stay is a bit of a drag. But with nine days on Kauai perhaps it would be the best of both worlds to split our stay between two places?
I know this is a matter of personal opinion - but not having been there before I would love to hear yours.
