Arrival by car

There are many car rental companies based at the airport. Renting a car will make life fun on Maui, as after class you can visit the local beaches, go for walks, and in the evenings enjoy some of the excellent local restaurants and then take longer adventures on your day off (Sunday afternoon). You can easily rent from companies such as Enterprise, Avis, Aloha, Kimo (it is best to do a Google search to find what deals work best for you).

If you are staying in the trainees house and do not wish to rent your own car, you can easily walk from the house to the shala. It is a beautiful walk down the hill of around 10-15 minutes. The walk from the Shala into the town of Paia is another 10 minutes down the hill. There is no bus service along this route, so be prepared to walk if you do not have a car.
