  3. I lived on Hilo side for 3 years. Teachers cove is 1 of the ultimate spots. Or teachers ponds (or just teachers depending on who you talk to) . It's a series of waterfalls surrounded by banyan trees. The roots make a series of waterfalls & ponds. & it's not a real Long walk, but when I lived there it was a local hangout. Witch means if your white or black, or just anything besides Hawaiian you might get beet up or robbed. I went there like 50 times got jumped once, robed 3 times & once saw 2 Hawaiians fight & stab each other over some stuff they had just sold off a white family (dig cam & a purse). I know that sounds scary but in truth most areas that are not tourist traps are like that. As poverty is rife & so is meth.

  4. Definitely went on my list of selections for the 25th wedding Anniversary we have been trying to decide, and the horse back riding, the Night Market, and of course the waterfalls, we went to Hawaii for our 10th, oahu and Maui we loved Oahu, Maui was more laid back. This is definitely a contender, not to mention the observatory.

  5. Any info on the bike rental place to Mt. Kileau? Easy to find? You remember the name and do they tell you where to go?

  6. Hi there! I will be in that island in a few days but we will be staying in the Volcano aerea.. I was wondering if is there any place nearby where you can do the kayaking with dolphins.. We will do the dog shelter for sure <3 I am really grateful for your video mate! 🙂

  7. You have not had real fun until you ride to rim of the valley on a 3 wheeler, or done Para sailing. Lava boat is up close and personal with Lava. Better than a hot bike ride and way closer. Big Island very cool.

  8. I dont need to pay to go to hawaii cuz i live there and loco mocos is goood and i lnow were rainbow falls and all kind other places

  9. I’ve never heard of the animal shelter program you mentioned, what an ingenious program! plus the big island of Hawaii is amazing and you came up with new ideas for me! Even though I’ve been there four times, great video!

  10. Love all the things you suggested! Fantastic chooses and comments. I was just wondering what horseback ride tour you took? Can’t find the 5 hour horseback ride. Thanks.
