Rent a car and drive to Rainbow Falls and Volcano National Park. Can stay as long as you want at what you like. Skip the Macadamia nut plant tour; tourist trap waste of time and the Orchid place (go to a good botanical garden at home and use the time on the volcano). Was told driving 3 hours to the black sand beach was a waste of time.

we rented a car and drove to the thermal pool and tidepools nearby. The best snorkeling spot we found. Up close colorful fish and calm water.

Went on the Volcano excursion which was informative and educating. Seeing the volcano and the lava rocks it produces was unbelievable, If I had to do it again I would make sure it was the excursion that took you to the volcano which was actually flowing into the sea in a video it was a sight to behold,

Hilo is a cute town to wander around, but know that it's on the rainy side of the island so bring a jacket/umbrella. You must drive/take a bus to see the volcano and it's at elevation, so dress WARM.
