With its world renowned beaches and tropical climate, Hawaii is a dream destination for many. Situated on a string of islands in the Central Pacific, it may seem out of reach to travelers on a budget. But, Hawaii packages can make the dramatic landscape of green mountains and sparkling waterfalls, sun and sand, accessible even to families and those looking for value pricing - and you can save time, too.
High season for tourists is typically from about mid-December to April, and you can find the cheapest Hawaii flight and hotel rates from September to mid-December. Hawaii enjoys a tropical climate, tempered by sea breezes. The rainy season is from October to April. There are fewer tourists on the beaches during the hottest summer months, from June to September, when temperatures average just under 90 degrees. Hawaii vacation packages can make travel during any season more affordable.
