New hubby and I are going to Maui for our honeymoon in Feb/Mar '10, for 10 days. We'll have a rental car. Should we split time between Kihei area and Lahaina area? (I guess that would be W. Maui and S. Maui?).
Besides the fact that it seems like paradise, I have two reasons for coming to Maui: WHALES!! and snorkeling.
Things we like:
Being outside - our travel style is hotel room for sleep & shower, gone otherwise
Hiking/walking to explore the area
Peace and quiet (hubby has slightly more crowd tolerance than me)
*Not* dealing with traffic or looking for parking
So we're looking for clean, comfy and convenient way more than luxury and pampering. Don't mind driving to find great snorkeling and hiking, just looking to avoid congested areas. If we stay in Lahaina/Kaanapali, we would love to choose a place where we could rely on shuttles and walking to get around.
Would really appreciate any insight or advice here! Thanks so much.
