What are some fun affordable activities to do in Maui in January?
My husband and I loved the Hana lava cave tour… it was just us and our tour guide, who owned the caves (how cool would THAT be to OWN your own lava tubes… those lava tubes had endless places to explore!). One of the great things about the lava tubes are that there are no bats, bugs or other creepy-crawly-type things in there… just the hardened lava. We also loved our day-trip to Lanai – we got to snorkel in 2 spots, plus walk around the island a bit. On the boat ride back, we found a bunch of dolphins who swam right alongside our boat! I could have reached out and touched them – they were THAT close!! It was absolutely amazing! Since you specified affordable, I’d highly recommend driving the Road to Hana – if you can, allow for 1 day there and 1 day back – that way, you can see EVERYTHING along the way, and all it will cost you is gas money (plus hotel if you stay the night in Hana). Also, if you go a bit past Hana, you can hike the 4.5 mile trail that ends at the 400′ Waimoku fa
