TEN TIPS WHEN TRAVELING TO MAUI, HAWAII

1. Prepare yourself for jet lag.

It is a grim reality of traveling to Hawaii; you're going to wake up at 3:00 am your first day ready to go. During the Summer Hawaii Standard Time is 3 hours difference from the West coast and a whopping 6 hours difference from the East coast.

If you're a power vacationer and you plan on seeing the sunrise on the peak of Haleakala do it early in your trip. You're up anyway, you might as well put it to use.

2. Bring food for your flight to Maui.

Some airlines have cut back so far that they are now only offering snacks for the long trip to Maui. BRING FOOD. This is especially true if you're flying with small children or if you have a medical condition.

Tip: Drink lots of water on the flight to Maui. Long flights will dehydrate your body and the best hydration is still water. Avoid coffee and soda and they will also dehydrate.

3. Prepare your sightseeing BEFORE you get to Maui.

There are so many things to do on Maui that it can be a bit overwhelming. Take a vacation before you even step off the plane. Get a guidebook and read about the island and all it has to offer. You'll be glad you did.

4. Maui food is expensive.

Prepare yourself for sticker shock. It is an undeniable fact that food on Maui is expensive. You can expect to pay almost twice as much for food as on the mainland. Look for the many Farmer's Markets all over the island as you can sometimes find bargains.

5. Bring sunscreen and USE IT.

They say that Maui is as close to Heaven as anywhere on earth. If that's true then Heaven must be close to the sun because the average tourist can get a nasty burn in less than an hour in the mid-day sun. Be smart, use sunscreen.

6. Respect the Ocean waters.

Enough cannot be said about the beauty of the waters that surround Maui and the other Hawaiian islands. But these waters, as beautiful as they are, must be respected. Waves can form unexpectedly and swamp those not paying attention. Lava rocks beneath the surface can cause a nasty toe stubbing or worse if you decide to dive into unfamiliar water.

Be careful and respect the water and have a great vacation!

7. Visit Upcountry Maui.

Upcountry is undiscovered Maui. There is so much more to Maui than "just" eye-popping blue water and glorious beaches. Look to the big mountain in the middle of the eastern part of the island. That's Haleakala. Drive toward it and stop in some of the quaint little towns on the way. You'll have discovered what some tourists completely miss.

8. Go to a Luau.

It might sound corny but Luau's ARE Hawaii. They are enjoyable. They are fun. And the great folks that put them on work very hard to make sure you have a fantastic time. So let yourself have a good time and GO TO A LUAU.

9. Take a walk around Maui.

There are so many great places to take a walk on Maui but our favorite is Lahaina. Why? Because there is something for everyone. History, galleries, pleasant eateries and a great big banyan tree right in the middle of it all.

10. Relax, you're on Maui.

You came to Maui to have a good time and granted there is a lot to see and do here. But Maui is a place to rejunvenate. Let the Spirit of the Islands take a hold of you. You will find yourself smiling a lot more and little things that might have bothered you before no longer do. That's the Spirit of Aloha. Take some home with you... with our compliments.

Maui is more than 2300 miles from it's closest neighbor on the mainland (San Francisco). It will take some time to acclimate to our island. Plan a light day for the day after you arrive.
