Things to know before you go
- A rental car is recommended as taxis and buses are not so common and many attractions are pretty spread out. Also, a rental car is ideal for that must-do experience, driving along the Ocean road.
- Pack clothes suitable for high heat and high humidity outdoors - and widespread effective air conditioning inside.
- Visit at a less popular time, during spring or fall. It’s slightly less fashionable but rather less costly too.
