From what you describe, it sounds like Maui would be a good match for your interests (Kauai nightlife is basically non-existant).

However – Hawaii is extremely expensive.  I just don’t see $2500 getting you very far beyond your airfare (unless you’re planning on staying with friends or family on the islands).  Just for comparison, our 7 nights in Maui is costing us around $7,000.  There are far cheaper accomodations on the Big Island, but I can’t speak for how nice they would be.

Your budget sounds like it would be fantastic for some all-inclusive options in Mexico or the Caribbean.  We had friends who did Riviera Maya for under 3,000 (and it was all-inclusive) and they had a fantasic time.

I like Maui a great deal. It’s great in the way it has little, far-off spots and then regular cities as well.


Have fun! My dad has lived there for 10 years now. You made a good choice!

Darling Husband and I went to Maui last August. We stayed at the Sheraton at Kaanapali. During our week we did a nice mixture of relaxing poolside and at the beach with sightseeing. We did the Road to Hana tour, a luau, the Maui aquarium, flew to Oahu for the day to see Peal Harbor, Waikiki, and Punchbowl. There are so many things you can do on Maui. It’s not as touristy as Oahu, but it has enough to do to keep you busy. I have some fantastic pictures.
