We have friends arriving to join us on a Thursday, their flight arrives early evening in Kona. we will pick them up and have early dinner and then let them relax and have early night. By this time jet lag will have set in after 11 hour flight. We will have Friday day and night before changing from Wyndham Hawaiian Kona resort to Waikoloa Hilton Resort on saturday for a week. We want to visit VNP, the botanical gardens and waterfalls on Hilo side and the Moana Loa Observatory Visitors Center. Friends also want to do a Luau one evening. This is first trip to Hawaii for all 4 of us. We will have rental car for both weeks. What is best route and days to visit each of the spots given our time frame?
Hubby and I are ok with staying one night at VNP, not sure friends will want to due to limited funds.
