Maui Weekend Itinerary (5 Days)

This itinerary of our visit to Maui took advantage of a couple of things. First, a friend of ours let us use their timeshare in Ka'anapali, which helped alleviate some of the accommodation costs (not cheap in Maui or in the Hawaiian Islands in general). Second, with the closure of the road that went all the way around East Maui (thanks to the Kona Earthquake in October 2007), we decided to split up the Hana Highway drive into two days by spending a night in sleepy Hana Town. It might have been one of the wisest things we had done! Of course, if we didn't have the benefit of taking advantage of the time share, it might have been difficult to split up the itinerary or double-book a room for a night. Nonetheless, as Julie and I had become very familiar with the Hawaiian Islands (this was our third or fourth trip to the islands), you'll see below that these extended weekend trips didn't seem like such a big deal from a time standpoint (at least for Los Angeles residents like us with easy access to LAX). It's really the cost that creeps up on you.
