The Big Island has a wide range of prices, climate and attractions. Consider your agenda and activity level so you get the best possible experience. Lodging can be very reasonable or very luxurious. Your budget is not a problem at either end of the scale. The luxury resort tend to be in the Waikoloa area, whereas the more economical are in the north part of the Island and Hilo side. Weather is also a bit like the economics. If you prefer a sunny beach front, head toward Waikoloa. For a cooler and wetter experience we'd suggest north and east.
