In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
You'll get in some beach time at Waikiki Beach and Waimea Bay. Venture out of the city with trips to Sunset Beach Park (in Haleiwa) and Lanikai Beach (in Kailua). There's much more to do: admire the majestic nature at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, cruise along Makapu'u Point, and stroll through Manoa Falls.

Plan trip to Honolulu with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.

Cusco, Peru to Honolulu is an approximately 25-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 5 hours traveling from Cusco to Honolulu. Prepare for somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Cusco in January: high temperatures in Honolulu hover around 31°C and lows are around 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Sat) so you can travel to Kihei.

Stretching over 9.7 km (6 mi) of pristine south Maui coastline, Kihei is the island's driest and sunniest region, making it a perfect location for water activities and beach leisure.
