Hawaii : Dining & staying in Hilo

Hilo is the second largest city in the Big Island of Hawaii. It is located on the East side of the Island (which is the biggest of the chain, as shown in the Heineken neon below). It's rainy, it's exposed to tragedy (was devastated by tsunamis in 1946 and 1960) but also keeps the charm of a hippy paradise. 

In Hilo, we stayed at Hilltop Legacy Inn and we LOVED it. It's essentially the most beautiful lodge, with a magic garden, cute cats & fresh papaya served in fine porcelain for breakfast. Free WiFi, free parking, calm nights and the nicest host ever (Jay). 

Lucky us, we found an offer for the Legacy Suite. Check Jay's gallery (it's worth it).

Locals outnumber you, diners are less fuss & more of a great deal. See below, one of the best burgers & beer that Enrique tried in the islands.
