The hardest 1 mile hike (2 round trip) of my life. My team and I decided to do a morning hike up the railroad ties to the top of the crater. A great experience, but if you're not in shape you'll struggle to make it to the top.

Was a great site. The towers were closed when we were there, so we couldn't go inside. I suggest going at nigh to see all the lights!

Underwhelmed. The novelty of cooking your own food quickly goes away when you realized the food isn't very good.

I thought there would be a place to run--not so much. However, it's an incredible place to take an evening walk. You could walk for miles along the beach. We saw wales breaching!

ATV 2 Hour Experience It was a great experience! I totally recommend it! The two hours seems a little long, but I heard that the one hour doesn't stop at all the movie locations. Our guide showed us Hurley's LOST Golf Course, the Jurassic Park log and Godzilla's footprints.

Perfect if you're looking to do Maui on a budget. You'll need to have a car. Most of the sights and beaches are a good 20-30 min away.
