I was able to book 2 two bedroom condos for a week. That was the only way some of my family was going to be able to afford to come to the reunion. Kona is a nice warm location on the Big Island to stay. It's in a great location to take day trips around the island. We took a plane ride out of the airport there and took a tour of the volcano and the island. It was awesome to see the lava shooting into the air, and see rivers of lava flowing thru the jungle. Th. e condo is a very short walk to the beach. With the full kitchen, we were able to cook in our room and save a lot of money. Hawaii is a beautiful island, with beautiful botanical gardens, beaches, mountains and the Volcano National Park. It is an awesome view looking down into the crater from the rim. If I remember correctly, Hawaii has 7 of the 9 climate zones found on Earth. Walking across a lava flow to a black sand beach was very interesting. You could see where the palm trees were as the lava flowed past.
