Trying to plan a trip to the 2019 Maui Invitational, but have never planned a trip before. Any help would be much appreciated! Are all inclusive packages the best way to go? Total travel noob here!

My only tip is if you want to rent a car, check out an online travel agent like AA Vacations or such. Adding an economy car only cost me about $40 extra for 4 days compared to just booking a flight. I would say with a car you won’t need to do an all-inclusive hotel, and you’ll get to experience more of the local island restaurants

If you prefer hotels, stay either in the Kanaapali area or Wailea-Makena area (the latter is the part of the island with the best beaches, but much more expensive). If you’re open to Airbnb/Condos, stay in Kihei.

I stayed in Paia on my last trip - loved staying there! Awesome restaurants and grocery store (Hana Foods) right there and there was a beach close by that had turtles come up on the sand!

And below I’m dropping a guide I created after visiting over the holidays. Enjoy!

I went to the Invitational this year. Did not do all inclusive, just bought tickets on Stubhub. The tournament is in Lahaina so would stay in Ka’anapali. If using Marriott point stay at the Westin or Ritz Kapalua (about a 10-15 min drive), I believe the Hyatt is also an official hotel.

BTW the tournament was awesome, totally amazing experience! You will have a great time.
