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?

A midsize to smaller car is better but bigger makes you feel safer. Plan on leaving with a few scratches and dings. Air conditioning is a must and have a good spare in the boot. Car batteries seem to go fast. Many good options for maintenance and local EBO staff technician. Just be prepared for crazy, unpredictable drivers and aggressive buses. Once you get the hang of the flow it’s ok. - Mar 2022

The bigger your car is, the harder it will be to find parking in the cities. Our Subaru Outback barley fits in our garage. I can find it difficult to navigate parking in the city. - Sep 2021

Don't bring a nice, new, shiny car because it will get dinged and scratched! Small is more practical but we have a big SUV and can navigate it just fine. We have had repairs done and were happy with the service. You can find a good garage through word of mouth. - Aug 2013

I'd say the smaller the better! The drivers here are absolutely insane and parking is limited with small spaces. - Apr 2006
