Four Tips for the Perfect Vacation in Maui Hawaii

Aug 5, 2008
A vacation in Maui Hawaii is exactly what the Doctor ordered. Activities are endless, the beaches are a picture of perfection, the people are fantastic, and there are tons of choices for lodging, flights and cars.

Not only can a vacation in Maui Hawaii be and inspirational trip of a lifetime, it can be form-fit to be the romantic or adventure pinnacle that you are seeking. The following five tips will share ideas about how to get the most out of your experience.

Tip One: Know the Best Times of the Year for the Trip

If you are planning for a romantic interlude, avoid the summers in Maui as you will compete with families during your entire trip. Simply put, when the kids are out of school, the visitor level increases on Maui. This may be the perfect time for family travel, but will cause headaches for those on their honeymoon or other romantic trips. Not only is it more expensive (typically), activities book up faster and there may be a good wait at restaurants.

Tip Two: Plan and Stick to Your Budget

The misconception is that a vacation in Maui Hawaii has to be a monumentally expensive trip. The truth is that there are ways to experience Maui both on a budget as well in complete luxury. Choose a budget that you can truly afford and plan your trip with that as a guideline.

If your goal is to save money and simply your trip planning, your best bet is to research Maui vacation packages. You can combine airfare, car rental, and lodging (hotels and condos) for a discounted price. The nice part of packages is that you can choose either top rated hotels or modestly priced ones. You may feel like getting a nicer rental car but sacrifice on the room if you do not plan to be in the room much. Maui vacation packages will allow the flexibility for you to book what you consider to be ideal. You can choose activities that are on your ideal trip list, but keep in mind that cheap activities like going to beach or snorkeling cost little to nothing.

Remember, if you have to stress about money the entire trip, you are not on vacation.

Tip Three: Spend Some Time Researching the Net or Books

There are some great insider travel tip websites and books about Maui. You can find tons of information online about creating the perfect vacation in Maui Hawaii. If I could recommend only one book about the island, I would advise that you get a copy of the book Maui Revealed by Andrew Doughty published by Wizard Publications Inc.

Just browse and see what looks appealing to you from your research. It is best not to overbook just to stay busy. Doing so will only add stress and help you miss a good portion on the magic that Maui can bring. Create a desired list of all of the activities you would like to do, whether you want to attend a luau, snorkel, dive, mountain bike, hike or explore a volcano.

Tip Four: Know the Major Needs for Maui

One of the best you can do is prepare properly for your vacation is to understand the key elements involved with the trip. This includes the climate and weather on Maui (according to which part of the island you will be on), what to pack for the trip, where medical centers are on the island and what your insurance covers, what needs to be booked in advance versus when you are there, and know safety concerns. The perfect vacation in Maui Hawaii begins with a little advanced planning.
