Staying dry on the Road to Hana is not as easy as you might think.  Light showers happen frequently.  You can set out for your drive down the Hana Highway under a clear blue sky, and find that you, your camera, and your rental car are all soaking wet an hour later.  Today, April fourth, the weather prediction for Hana goes from partly cloudy all the way to rain practically from moment to moment.

These are all reasons why we suggest stopping by Hana Picnic Lunch Company, your Hana headquarters, before you start on your Hana adventure.  Located in Paia, first stop on the Road to Hana, they have up to the minute weather updates so you won’t get caught unprepared.  They also sell great rain gear like comfy ponchos and umbrellas.  Of course, if you’re anything like us, you’ll end up with a Papaya Passion smoothie, too!  We also suggest you grab some ziplocs for valuable items like your camera, phone or wallet.  Trust us – the advice comes from our own experiences on the rainy Road to Hana. 

Also remember not to let a few rain drops discourage you from tackling the Hana Highway.  After all, so many of our favorite moments on this curvy road have happened in the rain.  It makes for that much more of an adventure.  Just take the right gear, and drive carefully, and your Road to Hana day will still be something to remember.
