Our Hawaii EXPEDITION
The best way to get around the island is to rent a car. What kind of car should you rent? It is depend on which island you want to discover. For Big Island is recommend a 4WD Jeep. Then you are able to drive the gravel roads and reach some Beaches that you cannot reach with a normal car without chassis clearance. For Maui and Kauai, it does no matter what kind of car. Is depend what you like to drive and pay for it. Road to Hana on Maui is nice to drive a convertible car. On Oahu has a lot of traffic, so I would look at the price of the rental. For Island hopping, I recommended to book the Flight approx. 4 month in advance. You can save a lot of money. Multi-City tickets are not always the cheapest, so you have to check it. For your stay is the comfortable and fair price to rent a home or condo. You can cook at your own or trying the good restaurant around you. There are all different kinds of culinary restaurant on Hawaii. You will find what you like. I prefer the local Hawaiian food. It is really a good kitchen.
If you cook at your own, try also the local fresh food. The insider tip is, find a local fish market and try seafood. You will not be disappointed.
