You can find many waterfalls on the north and east side of the Big Island thanks to lots of rain and a large gradient in elevation (volcanoes!). The size of these waterfalls and their location in the lush and tropical rainforest makes them a popular and spectacular attraction to check out.
The road to Hana is a twisting road, through a rainforest that passes over 50 bridges and around many of the 600 turns you will find waterfalls, incredible coastal sites, beautiful flowers, and wonderful small communities. Come with us to visit a more authentic Hawaii. We offer road to Hana tours, Hana helicopter tours, hiking trips, and even vacation packages! Check out our selection below.
Named Ko Chang (or \"Elephant Island\" in Thai) because of its elephant-shaped headland, this large island is more secluded than Phuket but no less beautiful. Its west coast is dotted with stunning coastlines (some sandy, some rocky), small towns and a variety of accommodation options, while its interior offers tropical jungles and gushing waterfalls to trek through and to. But remember, Ko Chang's tourism infrastructure isn't as well developed as other Thai islands, so getting here is a bit more of a trek.
Where you are staying on the Big Island will depend on what tours are available. Located on opposite sides of the island, Hilo is wetter with tropical rainforests and huge waterfalls where Kona is much drier, making for wonderfully warm, sunny days. Book an adventure snorkeling (with manta rays), attend a luau, or watch the sunset and go stargazing. All are amazing experiences here!
Breakfast at the hotel. Set off towards Banos, a subtropical area close to the Amazon basin, known for its beautiful hot springs. On route, pass through the Cotopaxi National Park on a panoramic tour, where you can see a wonderful panoramic view of the active Cotopaxi volcano. Next, make a stop at the impressive volcanic lake of Quilotoa. The water in the crater lake is an amazing green colour due to the high mineral content of the volcanic terrain. After Quilotoa, head to the small artisan town of Tigua to visit an artists workshop where you can discover an array of intricate and colourful artworks, typical to this region. Continue to Baños, arrive and transfer to the hotel. The remainder of the day is free to relax at your leisure. Overnight stay in Baños.
Waterfall Villa is a tropical paradise. As soon as we arrived, we had a greeter take us to our Villa and with great detail went over everything about the house. Best view and great amenities. Only two things to mention are the driveway and stove. Driveway was quite scary coming in the dark and gas stove at times was hard to cook on with constant circulating winds. Minor inconvenience. Pool is wonderful. House was amazing. Everyone was delightful to deal with. 1e1e36bf2d
