Get around[edit]

You need a car, public transportation is not recommended. It is unreliable and takes too long to reach destinations. When driving and unsure of directions don't hesitate to ask the locals. Most locals understand English they just might be rusty for not practicing it, so bear with them. Use your judgement on who you ask, because although many locals would be happy to help others get a kick out of giving wrong directions.
