Arriving at your final destination – resort, hotel, cottage, condo or villa – for your vacation or honeymoon on a small island like Maui is quick and easy. Most visitors drive south from the airport in the direction of Kihei and Wailea via Mokulele and Piilani highways (Rte. 31) or west along Honoapilani highways (Rte. 30) for Lahaina, Ka’anapali, Kahana or Kapalua.  Some will also drive east from the airport along Hana Highway to a northshore vacation rental for close proximity to water sports.

Maui Airport Lei Greetings

If you’ve arranged for a Maui Airport lei greeting  you’ll be welcomed to the island with Aloha as you leave the escalator downstairs near the baggage area. You’ll be then, greeted by a young Wahine (woman) performing a hula dance accompanied by a young Kane (man) playing a Hawaiian song on the Ukulele.

Maui Weather & Climate

Disembarking from your flight at Maui’s Kahului Airport (OGG) is always an overwhelming wonderful feeling, both for Hawaii visitors and for residents who have lived on this idyllic isle for years.

When you step from the plane the warm, sweet tropical air that is kept cool and fresh by the trade winds, typical at Hawaii’s latitude, envelops you blowing from the northeast across thousands of miles of the Pacific Ocean. As you begin your vacation on the Valley Isle, you can keep up to date with Maui current weather conditions and Maui weather forecasts.

  1. The Road to Hana. Take off early to drive the Road to Hana! It’s the #1 thing to do when vacationing on Maui!  You can enjoy waterfalls, pools, secret beaches, bamboo forests and yummy little meals on the road in Hana or Kipahulu. You may drive completey around the island’s south side through Kaupo. It takes a bit longer, but it’s well worth it, especially since you end up in upcountry Kula. Don’t miss out on a bath at Seven Sacred Pools or a hike, starting from the same parking lot, through the bamboo forest to an amazing waterfall. Park Entry fee is $10 and applies to Mt. Haleakala as well. If you don’t like to drive by yourself, you can always enjoy a narrated van tour; we call it “Maui Heavenly Road to Hana Tour”.maui sunrise tourSource: Copyright by Ron Dahlquist 

  2.  Sunrise at the House of the Sun. Take off VERY early (2:00-4:00am) well before sunrise at and drive to 10,000-foot Haleakala Summit to enjoy the sunrise. It’s a “Must Do” Thing! But be aware, it’s very cold up there, really, it feels like zero degree at your home town with high humidity and strong winds, so be well prepared! National Park Entry is $10 per vehicle. A narrated van tour is available for “Haleakala Sunrise Van Tour”.

Collision/Loss Damage Waiver ($26.99/day* Alamo – $26.99/day*: Budget – $26.99/day*: Avis)?Loss Damage Waiver (LDW) is not insurance – it’s an option that relieves you of financial responsibility if your rental vehicle is damaged or stolen during your rental. Even if you think you are already covered under your personal policy, purchasing LDW has a multitude of benefits. It eliminates the hassle of dealing with your own insurance company claim process, stops any out-of-pocket expenses you may incur from the deductible on your personal policy and avoids the risk of your premium increasing.

Note: Any UM/UIM benefits paid are included in the $1 million combined single limit EP coverage and in no way increases the combined single limit referenced above.

When I landed to Maui Airport I rented a car so that I can go anywhere and explore the place as well.
