Need Hawaii itinerary advice! Going to the BI (first time for both) and Maui (second time for me since I was a kid, first for SO) and want to cut down some stuff on the itinerary to let it be more loose and on island time yet still get our money’s worth. We like hiking, are open to snorkeling/water activities (not normally beach people but can’t not enjoy Hawaii waters), and love food and drinks. See specific questions in comments.

I’m traveling again for work and while it took me a while to get back into it, I’m almost as efficient as I was pre-Covid. My issue is that when I get home, I am exhausted. It feels like it takes me a day to recover from any travel that is more than an overnight trip. I know travel disrupts sleep and I eat heavier food when I’m on the road, so I’m watching that, but any other tips to not come home feeling like a shell? Or how to bounce back faster?
