My wife and I are thinking of taking our first vacation (Feb/March) without our 2yo son, and I'm trying to make the case for Maui. Her idea was Sonoma. We came to Maui last summer but our activities were limited by the kid.
Now Maui is not our favorite island, but we have certificates for the Fairmont Kea Lani in Wailea, and 200K+ Delta miles that we need to burn. Our budget will be under $1000.
I was wondering if I could get some input from the experts here.
Any recommendations for things that are best done without kids?
The list we came up with was Haleakala bike ride, Road to Hana, upcountry road trip, and daily snorkeling.
She's interested in a Molokini boat trip, but I've only heard disappointment lately. Too crowded, not enough out there to justify the trip, etc.
(I'm not concerned about flying to Hawaii for only four nights. I live in LA, so it's only a five hour flight, where I will be allowed to sit and read/watch/play whatever I want, without trying to entertain/quiet a toddler. That's a vacation in itself!)
