I didnít check bags and was the first off the plane. Even after using the menís room I was waiting for my taxi before most of the economy passengers
even deplaned. To get to Mauiís northwest coast I hired Mai Taxi (808-276-4411),
a cool Vietnamese familyĖrun business, for the 50-minute drive to the Ritz-Carlton along the winding coastline towards Lahaina and through Ka'anapali.
Taxis are not cheap in Hawaii and the ride cost $104 without tip. Next time I will rent a car (self parking is free, valet is $18).
