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.

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.

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.
