Spend a great half day exploring sleepy Hilo Town. You can visit a local cacao farm, and go swimming under iconic 120-foot waterfalls. Discover Hilo beyond its historic, wooden storefronts as your local guide teaches you about the secrets of this town's rich heritage. 

Our first stop along the tour will be majestic Rainbow Falls. Soak in the view at this picturesque waterfall while your guide describes why this location is such a famous local landmark.

On the farm, you will learn how cacao goes from "tree to bar" while sampling some delicious chocolate creations.
