Holoholo Girls is a pet project of three longtime friends, living and thriving on Hawai’i Island. We are bloggers from Hilo, Keaʻau, and Waimea, sharing photos and musings as women, wives, mothers, daughters, friends, and adventurers.

Holoholo means to get out there, to go on excursions, to check out and become familiar with your world, either alone or with friends. We prefer the latter. We invite you to do the same. Coming to Hawaiʻi Island? Check out what’s happening on Hawaiʻi Island at Konaweb’s Big Island Calendar of Events.

Meet the Girls

Carolinacarolinaʻs pic

Carolina was born and raised in Hilo, Hawaiʻi, to parents hailing from Peru and China. She is fluent in Spanish and has traveled throughout the world learning about different cultures, customs, and traditions since the age of two. Now as a first time mother, Carolina is learning to navigate through the baby culture.  She enjoys trying different culinary cuisines, ballroom dancing (when the occasion presents itself), and spending time outdoors with her family (husband, child, and two chartreux cats).  Her mantra in life is to try something once, it doesn’t hurt to fail, as we learn from that experience.


Although Hilo is where Kainoa has lived the longest, she is still a Kauaʻi girl at heart. A hula practitioner, higher education professional, and graduate student, Kainoa also has a variety of interests including solo travel, photography, domestic arts, learning new languages, environmental stewardship, and Korean pop culture. In 2008 and 2009, her photographs were accepted for inclusion in the Hawaiʻi Photo Expo, while her post, “Are You Filipina?” was featured on Freshly Pressed in 2013.
