Listen in as we go backstage at Hawaii's hottest new show called Cirque Polynesia. This attraction has a little bit of local Hawaiian music and dance meshed with world class acrobats and illusionists. It's at the Hyatt on Maui and will have you at the edge of your seat as the performers amaze you from start to finish. They have the top balancer in the world and the famous Wallenda Family with their death-defying high-wire act 40 feet above your head.
We loved the top notch stunts and showmanship of the cast. No surprise as the producer has been around shows since he was a little boy. We catch up with Tuffy Nicholas who shares some great stories about his dad who was a ringmaster with Ringling Brothers and his mom who was a bear trainer!
So if you are looking for things to do in Maui, Hawaii, then stop by the Hyatt Regency and see Cirque Polynesia.

If you want to get a feel for ancient Hawaii and its heritage, customs and culture, then stop by Kalaekilohana B & B near South Point and Volcancoes National Park. You can get a Lomi Lomi massage from a local expert. You can learn how to make a lei. You can try your hand at weaving and work with Hawaiian tools.
You might even catch a Hulu workshop. This place is very much in touch with Hawaii's past. You can also sample some local coffee that has won awards around the globe.
