Are you a traveler or a tourist? What are you searching for on your Maui adventure? The predictability of resort life appeals to many, but perhaps you are feeling the stirrings of your inner wanderer and you want to experience local culture on your own terms when you visit Maui. The thing about Maui is that while it is incredible to experience one area, there are so many diverse landscapes and varied experiences to be had all over the island.
You could participate in organized events through your resort, or you could design your own vacation, choose-your-own-adventure style. You will have to leave room for surprises, and sometime be patient and wait for the plan to be revealed. But as locals know, Maui is best experienced by letting go and seeing what happens next.
By renting a camper or van on Maui, you are literally placing yourself in the driver’s seat. In another way, however, you are allowing the island magic to unfold the path before you as you go. It might take a bit of bravery and uncertainty at times, but when did playing it predictable meaningfully pay off?
Cabana chairs and mai tais are a valid option… but so is a traveling home styled out with convenience and comfort, letting you follow the call of Maui’s open road.
