is a really large island. It takes about 11
hours to drive around the whole thing in my
jeep - and that's without stopping. That said,
when planning your vacation waterfall activities,
you don't have to drive "all the way" on the
road to Hana, just to see a waterfall and
a bamboo forest.
are a bunch of easy, yet still hidden waterfalls
that the normal tourist will just drive on
by - as they "try" to explore the road to
Hana. The waterfall area begins about a hour
from your hotel. How far you want me to drive
on the road to Hana is up to you.
We see waterfalls, the bamboo forest, with
plenty of pictures and video! The road to
Hana is the best eco tour activity on Maui...you
just have to do it right. The first requirement
is a convertible jeep. The second is hiring
a private waterfall tour guide. It's the best
way to see Maui waterfalls at your own pace.
driving a jeep on the road to Hana is a fun
day by itself - but when you blend in hiking
and swimming with picture taking and lunch,
then the entire day becomes folklore...to
be told at family gatherings forever. Since
these are private hikes, the hiking is different
because the "easy-hard" hiking level is up
to you. Some trails are super easy and STILL
lead to beautiful, yet hidden waterfalls.
Other hiking trails are more challenging.
I've lived here for 22 years - and I know
tons of hiking trails. I do guarantee 1 thing:
ALL HIKES ARE BEAUTIFUL !!! Being "escorted"
in a private, convertible jeep on Maui's Hana
Highway, is a completely mellow experience.
The soft-top folds back, allowing you to hear
the birds and smell the fresh jungle air.
The road to Hana is famous and spectacular.
My private jeep also has heat and air conditioning
