The main roads are mostly in good condition, with some bumpy dirt stretches at remote locations and a few hilly areas that flood easily and become impassable for a day. Driving is on the left. To rent a car, you need a valid license and a temporary permit ($20), available through the rental agent. Costs start at about $50 per day in season, with unlimited mileage, though multiday discounts are standard. Most agencies offer automatic or stick shift and right- and left-hand drive. Four-wheel-drive vehicles (from $55 per day) will get you more places and are useful because so many roads are full of potholes.
