Kauai in 3 Days
3 Day Itinerary for Kauai
My husband and I chose Kauai as our honeymoon destination. We stayed in Kapaa for the weekend as it's a central location. Renting a car is a must! Kauai has buses for transportation at $2 a trip, if you're on a tight budget. There is a military base on the island, so anyone with base access could get accommodations at an inexpensive price. We were so busy in those 3 days taking in the views, kayaking, and tubing that we did not visit a beach. We live on Oahu, so we were ok with that. Below, I am providing you with our 3 day itinerary, pictures, and tips!
