Like in Costa Rica, water-related recreation is very popular on Maui. Families can try out all sorts of fun aquatic activities such as parasailing, wind surfing, boogie boarding, kayaking, snorkeling and scuba diving. Maui even has its own national park, Haleakala National Park to be precise, and we already know those make great destinations for family travel. At Haleakala, visitors will see gurgling streams and cascading waterfalls, along with all manner of species native to Hawaii. And for families who can stay up a little later, the summit of Haleakala is a great place to see the glory of the Milky Way.

For our next summer stop, we'll be hitting up another destination renowned for family fun.
