If your going to land on Kauai during daylight make sure you have a window seat. There's nothing like seeing the island come into view after a long flight. The views of the coastline are beautiful. The Lihue airport is small so it is easy to get around. There are only two luggage carrousels so once you grab your luggage, you'll head to the exit shown in the picture above, welcoming you to Kauai. As you can see in the photo, just follow the signs to the taxi's, shuttles or rental cars. The Pono Kai is only 8 miles from the airport so you should be checking in, in about ten to fifteen minutes after you pick up your car.
