Volcano Forest Inn is a great base for exploring the Big Island. Situated literally on the verge of Volcano National Park, surrounded by the rain forest and half an hour drive from the sea turtles at Punalu'u Black Sand Beach, this is right in the center of all the sights. We stayed 5 nights and would have loved to stay 5 more. The farmers' market in Hilo, within half an hours drive from the Inn, is most charming and exotic. You should try the sticky rice and mashed banana wrapped and steamed in a banana leaf. You will also find papayas like you have never tasted before. Our hosts at the Inn Drew and Neecee, also recommended the Shaka Bar, the southernmost bar in the US, a great place for breakfast (try the Portuguese sausage) and local dishes such as the laulau. We also recommend the drive all the way up to the observatory on the Mauna Kea. Volcano Forest Inn was the perfect starting point for all the day trips we did. The rooms are spacious, clean and peaceful with an outdoor patio. Warm coffee and home baked cake in the morning and lots of good advice from Drew and Neecee on what to see and where to go for a meal. Did we mention the free internet? Thanks for a great time! We will surely be back!
