Throughout the past couple years, the crime rate has gotten bad. There are more suicides, murders and also freak accidents happening here in Hawai'i. It's not as bad as the mainland and this is why I gave the crime rate a 3

Kona is a pretty small town. Most of the businesses are small, with a few big-name companies (e.g. WalMart, Target). Having such a large amount of small businesses allows for a very comfortable environment and personal connection with the business owners and employees.
Patricio's is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants. There is a great selection of burritos, tacos, soups, etc. I eat here on a regular basis, and I share my wonderful experience with my friends and family.
