We stayed 12 nights in Kapaa, just north of Lihue, over Spring Break 2013. Road construction caused travel times of 45 minutes to go two miles on eight of those days. Did I mention that it was Spring break? Whomever manages road projects apparently didn't care either that it was Spring Break or that their construction protocols could be amended to ensure decent traffic flow. This just screams at the visitor/victim, "PLEASE! Go elsewhere to enjoy your vacation! Why not Maui?"

I got the message loud and clear. For 2014, it will be, "Maui, here we come!" You, too, I hope.

We had a fantastic Jurassic Falls tour with Island Helicopters. We would definitely recommend them for your helicopter trip. Our pilot was very knowledgeable on Kauai history and landmarks. The pilot did an amazing job with our flight.

We had a great time touring Kauai with Blue Hawaiian helicopters! The tour is very thorough, the pilot very professional & safe.

My husband and I are rather lenient, and although we knew that this car company was a budget company, we didn't realize it was EXTREME rent-a-wreck. The car was not only not functional, the window broke, during torrential rains, the transmission and clutch were not operable. We attempted to return the car and were refused a return or any form of refund. The operators were rarely there and didn't answer the phones. This was not just an asthetic nightmare, it was non-functional and a serious safety issue. These guys should be run out of town!

It's the most commercial of all cities on Kauai. But, if you go 10 minutes in either direction, you would be much happier. There are more restaurant and shopping spots in Kapaa than in lihue.
