Book your Hotel in Hawaii
The ocean temperature is 22-27°C year round and anytime of year is a good time to visit Hawaii. Summer, between April and November, is warmer and drier (average temperature is 24°-32° C) while winter, between December and March, is a bit cooler (20°-27° F). Trade winds keep things comfortable year-round. www.weather.gov/hawaii
Attire is "resort wear" even at the most luxurious resorts and restaurants. There's no need to bring a coat or tie unless you want to dress up. Remember, it is custom in Hawaii to slip off your shoes when entering a home.
Dress for comfort. T-shirts, tank tops, polo shirts, shorts, jeans, sundresses, sneakers and sandals are all good choices. Temperatures are cooler in the evening making a sweater and slacks a good idea, and a jacket is recommended for those planning to venture into cool upland regions.
Traveling in Hawaii
To really experience all that Hawaii offers, we strongly recommend renting a car. ALIO offers great rates through our partner, AVIS Rent A Car.
Many visitors also enjoy taking bus tours to conveniently explore the Islands. Shuttles, taxis, and public transport are available on most islands.
Intra-island travel by air is fast and affordable. Alio can help you secure your intra-island flights, when booking your outbound ticket from Canada to Hawaii.
Hawaii's two official languages are Hawaiian and English. The melodious Hawaiian language is a Polynesian dialect and only has 13 letters.
Hawaii Standard Time
Hawaii follows Hawaii Standard Time (GMT-10 hours), which is 5 hours behind Eastern Standard Time and 2 hours behind Pacific Standard Time. Hawaii does not observe Daylight Savings Time so add one extra hour to the time difference during this period (March through November).

For any couple to lawfully marry in the State of Hawaii, a license must be obtained from an authorized agent. Once the license has been issued, there is no waiting period before the marriage can take place. Go to http://portal.ehawaii.gov/visitors/getting-married/ for complete details.
|Which island is right for you?|
While Waikiki on Oahu has long been the most developed and visited city in the Hawaiian islands, each island offers something unique.
