Whether you are traveling for the holiday season or just looking for a summer escape let’s face it, traveling has its downsides. Between the chaotic airports and long flights, going on vacation is less than fabulous until you actually reach your destination. Throw some kids in the mix and you are now wondering why you are leaving home in the first place. As a popular West Maui getaway, it is our goal here at Kahana Village from that moment you book to put your mind at ease and ensure that your experience here in Hawaii is as stress-free as possible.
Here are a few of our top tips to getting the most out of your Hawaii vacation.
Consider if the Layovers and Connection Flights are Worth it
Whether you are on a budget or dealing with inflated peak season prices, when booking your flight to paradise we suggest evaluating if the layovers and connection flights are really worth it. While the cheaper prices may seem appealing at the time, you might find yourself questioning that decision as you are shuttling your family into a subtle sprint across the terminal as the next flight starts closing for takeoff.
Avoid a Food Fight
Nothing says “hangry” like traveling toddler. And that mixed with the crazy airport environment might have you pulling your hair out before you even get the chance to get off the ground. Combat a potential food fight by planning your meals in advance and getting a little creative. You will want to make sure that whatever mini-meals you pack in your carryon is either a dish they really love or something that is different than the normal meals they get.
Create a Flexible Itinerary
When you have finally arrived in the Valley Isle, we suggest keeping the itinerary flexible. In addition to planning ideas that keep everyone happy, you also want to ensure that you aren’t overdoing it. Leave room in your schedule to spontaneously grab a bite or lounge by the beachfront pool. You don’t have to include all the activities that Hawaii has to offer in order to have an unforgettable Hawaii vacation
Traveling may be stressful, but coming to Hawaii doesn’t have to be! So kick back, relax, and look forward to making some sweet Maui memories with your family. See you soon!
