We honeymooned in Maui. We had a sedan and were perfectly happy with it, but it was worth the cost savings to us. Plus, I’m fair skinned so sensitive to the sun, and I had a small bit of sun poisoning by the end of our honeymoon, so a convertible would not have been great for me personally, haha!

It’s really up to whether it’s more important to you to have the fun car vs. save money. We preferred to spend that money on something else, but that was us. Totally up to you! 🙂

I would do the convertable! They are typically not much more than a regular car. If that’s the car you really want I wouldn’t recommend waiting until arrival to try to book it, as they are frequently sold out.

If your heart is really set on a convertible, by all means go for it, but I can tell you that most people end up driving around with the top up most of the time – because after all, this is the tropics, and drizzles and even downpours will materialize when you least expect them.

And the sun is more fierce than many people imagine it will be.

Jeeps are definitely not necessary, because all of the rental car companies forbid you to drive on 4WD roads, or even paved roads that aren’t in good shape in some cases. The rental car contracts will specify the roads you can’t drive on. A Jeep ends up being a big waste of money.

I would definitely go for the convertible, but a go for a Sebring or Mustang rather than the Jeep.  You’ll enjoy a more comfortable ride and won’t have have the (big) hassle of getting the Jeep’s top up if you run into rain.
