    • Stay close to Haleakala or drive from Lahaina? Jan weather?

      Maui Nov 5, 2014 at 2:20 PM

      Hello, We are touring Maui for 8 days. Here is our plan until now:

      December 28th: Landing in Kahului at 10:30 AM

      December 28th: Drive around West Maui

      December 29th: Drive to Hana

      December 29th and 30th: Stay in Hana

      December 31st: Drive beyond Hana, and the back side of Haleakala

      Dec 31st night: Stay near Haleakala or Lahaina?

      Rest: Stay in Lahaina.

      On the drive back from Hana on 31st, our plan is to stop overnight somewhere close to Haleakala National Park to catch the sunset on 31st or sunrise on Jan 1st. One advantage of staying close is that we don't have to wake up early and drive for 3 hours to catch the sunrise. But on the flip side if the weather is bad on 1st morning, we will have no choice to pick a different day. How is the weather generally in early January? Do you think its better to stay in Lahaina and pick a day to drive up Haleakala depending on the weather?
