The second stop on our Hawaiian getaway was to Maui. We were slightly disappointed with our stay. It was far more developed than the Garden Island of Kauai. We still very much enjoyed our slice of paradise for the short three days we were there.
Next stop, Maui!
After several issues with our original room, we were upgraded to an ocean view. Absolutely picture perfect views.
Extremely hot in Maui, spent a lot of time in the many pools at our resort to stay cool.
Mandatory nightly happy hour on our balcony to watch the sunset.

Mai Tai + Lava Flow [gotta get in our fruity tropical drinks]
Best snorkeling of all the islands was at Molokini, a partially submerged volcanic crater
