It consists of smashed Acai palm fruit which when frozen and blended creates a smoothie cream base, then cold and fresh fruit, peanut butter, coconut flakes, goji berries, and cocoa nibs are added on top. There are many stops along the way that serve these bowls. Bonzai Bowls is THE BEST SPOT FOR ACAI! This treat is a great way to help out the local businesses!

Honolulu, Waikiki Beachcomber By Outrigger

Content: For lodging it can be tricky since Airbnb has been banned on the North Shore (the prettiest and chillest surf town area) so most tourists will stay in Honolulu in the city at a hotel. If you do this I suggest going to Beachcomber Hotel in Honolulu, they have the best immunities, pool, and maui brewing bar at a reasonable price. If you are looking for more of a bang for your budget Hotel La Croix is a great mid-leveled hotel that has everything you need at a cheaper price. And if you are looking for even cheaper check out the Hostels in Honolulu, they are all super cheap and really well kept (and a great way to meet people). For North Shore Lodging: check out VRBO and check out Turtle Bay Lodging (not the hotel but the houses) These can be rented out for short time periods and are good prices. Reach out to us for more lodging information if needed @compass.travelers.

Content: 4. MERMAID CAVES Ever seen H20 or any mermaid movie!? Well these caves are exactly what you would picture swimming in if you grew a mermaid tail. Here are some things to know before you go: Bring a bathing suit you WILL get wet Go on a day when the water is not wavy, and the current is not strong. Wind and waves can make the opening to the cave very dangerous. Low tide is a preferable time to get because the cave will be bigger. The opening to the cave is near the beach and up near where land is, you will see a hole opening. You have to jump into it. It is a far drop so be careful. Underneath is the cave.It is a FREE activity! It is on the West Side of the Island.Go with someone just in case! You don’t want to be stuck in a cave with no one to help you out!

Content: 5. SKY DIVING & HELICOPTER RIDE (SKYDIVE HAWAII) YES SKYDIVING, this is the BEST way to get out of your head an into the present moment. For some this might be too scary for them but for most this is a once in a life opportunity to get out of their comfort zone and LITERALLY take the JUMP! Another way to get this adrenaline experience is riding on a Helicopter Tour. Both ways are great ways to see the whole island above. Here are some things you should know before taking the jump:Yes, it is scary, no it is not as scary as you think it will be. Actually, the two times I have skydived I was surprisingly at ease while in the sky. The actual feeling of jumping out of the plan does not flip your stomach or make your body react in a bad way.

This is an awesome place to sail to and have a nice margarita drink on the sandbar!

Content: Just as an end note, Oahu is a fun, cultural, natural hub. Filled with everything, and I mean EVERYTHING you could ever need! The adventures, memories, and experiences on this Island will be some of the best memories of your life! If it’s shark diving with Deep Blue Eco Tours, hiking crouching lion, or simply going to Pau Hana Base for an authentic culture experience, you will never forget how unique this place is. As always respect the Hawaiian culture/land and traditions. It is always good to come to the Island as a protector and lover of the land, mana, and Hawaiian culture instead of coming to the Island as an American consumer. A great way to immerse yourself and spread/learn about Hawaiian culture is at the Polynesian center. Hope you enjoy your trip, feel free to reach out to @compass.travelers on Instagram for more tips.
