#6 MOVING AROUND BY CAR RENTAL:

By far the best way to move about, if you have experience driving in Italy, Paris, Germany and many other fast driving countries, this would actually be just a bit faster but surely equal, if you are just learning to drive or come from the U.S. forget it ! , Road signs are marked as the U.S. and in some instances as in Europe, Also the speed and distanced is posted in kilometers instead of miles, yet the gallon is the measure in gasoline pumps(Go Figure that one out) for the most part is the faster you go the sooner you'll get to your destination, but it's recomended to drive deffensively, expect to be overtaken and cut in some instances in major highways, avoid driving at night(locals rarely do) in highways or to and from rural towns.

On top left is a sign common in the major highways, it lets you know when you are approaching a rest area, where food, lavatory, shops, gas, banking etc is avaliable, it uses international icons to represent what's avaliable :-)
This one was on the way to San Cristobal
