What kind of car do you recommend bringing to post, given the terrain, availability of parts, burglary/carjacking risks, etc.? What kind of car do you advise not to bring?

We took a Toyota 4 Runner. It was very good for the dirt roads and also there is a Toyota dealer and service locally at the main avenue. It was a huge car compared to others but it was the ideal car for the place. I would never take any type of small car or cars not suitable for dirt roads. - Sep 27, 2017
