It is true that the east side of the Big Island receives
an annual rainfall of roughly one hundred inches (depending
on your location, BUT you must remember that the reason
this area is so spectacularly beautiful is BECAUSE
OF the rain.
Most of the rainfall falls at night or very early
in the morning. And more often than not a shower comes
and goes in minutes. It seems that our area is the
first to clear up as the clouds blow away. Our nearby
community is Kalapana (which means "hole in the sky" and was named because this area seems to always be
sunny, even when it rains all around the area)
So, if you get caught in the rain, will your trip
be ruined? NO! In fact, you will witness even more
beautiful colors and greater sights if it is raining.
But chances are, that while you are out sightseeing,
it will be warm and sunny. It is usually either spring
or summer here, with need for possibly only a sweater
or sweatshirt at night in the winter.
We have umbrellas for you to borrow, but chances are
you will not need it.
So relax and your vacation in paradise will be
