Growing every day, this island is young and adventurous and yet...it is full of cultural treasures and nature's fireworks.
So much to do and see, the mere fact that it encapsulates all but two of the world's climate zones hints at its vast offerings.
In one day you can get lost in a lush rain forest, throw a snowball, explore astronomy and ride horseback with the paniolos. Or, snorkel with manta rays, sunbathe on beautiful black sand beaches with green sea turtles basking in the sun and volunteer at a coffee farm picking beans.
This is home to one of the world's most active volcanoes, the tallest sea mountain in the world, the most massive mountain in the world and the largest park in the state.
