Start with a drive through quaint Hilo town where you’ll drive along the historic waterfront before heading out to the old fishing village of Kalapana.

Stop by Star of the Sea Painted Church, moved by the community twice to save it from advancing lava flows in 1990, this decommissioned church is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Next travel to the crown jewel of Hawaii, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. V isit the Kilauea Visitor’s Center, the Kilauea Iki Crater Overlook, and Steaming Bluffs.

    Tiempos de pandemia deben cambiarse expectivas. La naturaleza paisajes volcano, mover la economia, grandes experiencias pero debe cumlir normas de hawaii y no hay suficiente informacion y tomar los tours tal como los ofrecen pudimos ver de lejos la fumarola pero el punto de mayor visibilidad estaba cerrado
