Maui Winters

This year I took my second vacation trip to Maui. Both of my trips have been during the island’s winter season. Winter season in Hawaii is usually from November to April. If you don’t mind the tropical rain showering over you here and there and maybe even some mud, then I say winter time in Maui is actually great. The temperature is nice, ranging from the 70s to 80s (not scorching hot). During this time it is also the prime for whale watching.

I was very curious to see what other nature Maui had to offer (besides the beautiful beaches). I decided to do an ATV tour with Kahoma Ranch. I booked their 2 hour tour for $150. We had two tour guides who were very nice and informative. Since it had rained the previous days it was a bit muddy but that made the off-roading even better. I was prepared and ready to get dirty but I had never imagined getting THAT dirty. There was red dirt all over me in every place possible. After driving down a bumpy curvy trail for a while, we came up on the mountain to see a gorgeous overview.

Up at the top of the mountain one of the guides showed us how to cut a pineapple properly and gave everyone a slice. This fresh bright yellow pineapple was so juicy and sweet, maybe the best I have ever had. Two female peacocks casually walked by as if awaiting for a victim to drop some fruit. The trail we took down had more trees to go through and seemed like a scene out of Jurassic Park. Driving through this scenery with red sand flying all around, was almost unreal.

On the way back from Lahaina I always make sure to stop at this small market for a fresh juice.

I hope you enjoyed another post about Maui as I enjoyed sharing. Maui is always a good idea, even in the winters.

    Awesome “find your beach” photo with the Corona.🍻 You have great abs…I know that must take a lot of commitment to your training and diet. The photo of you by beach…wow! 🔥You have a great eye for backdrops and nature, in general, when that is the subject.

    So, that’s what winter in Maui looks like. Nice, and not like Michigan winters at all. 😉 Really like the top two photos, with the background a little blurred so you stand out more. And you with the VW beetle–two classy chassis you might say. 🙂

Let me know what you think!
