Planning your trip - what resources are there?

I definitely recommend doing some research while you prepare for your Maui trip. There are so many cool things to do here, doing a little research will help your trip go even better. You are reading my blog, that's a good start - but I am by no means a Maui expert!

There is an excellent guide book, it is called Maui Revealed - The Ultimate Guidebook by Andrew Doughty. It's published by Wizard Publications. You can find it at Costco and at all corner stores here on Maui, or order it online if you want to read before you arrive. I also just saw there is an IPhone app for it, if that's your thing.

Online review websites, such as Tripadvisor and Yelp, are also great. Take the reviews with a grain of salt - remember we are more likely to post negative than positive reviews (when's the last time you did?). However, they can be a good indicator.

The internet is a huge resource - search 'maui to do' or some variation of it, and you will come up with lots of ideas.

Ask your friends and family who have been what their favorite memories were.

And definitely don't be shy to ask whoever you're renting your condo from for tips and suggestions.

Whatever you do, remember you're here on holiday! If you can't fit it all in this trip, you'll see the rest next time! Most importantly - relax and enjoy a break from your everyday!
