ROAD
====
A NATIONAL DRIVERS LICENCE IS ACCEPTED FOR UP TO THREE
MONTHS. IT IS A GOOD IDEA TO HAVE AN INTERNATIONAL LICENCE.
CAR RENTALS ARE AVAILABLE IN NASSAU, FREEPORT AND THE
LARGER ISLANDS. THESE CARS ARE EASILY RECOGNISED BY THEIR
WHITE REGISTRATION PLATES. THE ROADS IN THE BAHAMAS VARY
FROM REASONABLE TO BAD. DRIVE ON THE LEFT WITH SPEED
LIMITS OF APPROXIMATELY 56KPH EVERYWHERE.

MOTOR SCOOTERS AND BICYCLES ARE ALSO AVAILABLE FOR RENT
AND ARE A GOOD WAY OF SEEING THE COUNTRYSIDE AT YOUR OWN
PACE. HELMETS MUST BE WORN.

HITCHHIKING: ALTHOUGH IT IS ILLEGAL, IT IS QUITE EASY TO
CATCH A RIDE.

TAXIS: TAXI FARES MAY SEEM HIGH, BUT THIS IS BECAUSE OF THE
LARGE DISTANCES BETWEEN PLACES ON NEW PROVIDENCE AND OTHER
ISLANDS. BEWARE OF HACKERS. THESE ARE ILLEGAL AND MORE
EXPENSIVE.

JITNEYS: THIS IS A MINIBUS USED BY THE LOCALS. IT STOPS AT
DESIGNATED BUS STOPS AND HAS A LOW FARE. THIS FARE IS THE
SAME, NO MATTER HOW FAR YOU TRAVEL. THIS LOCAL TRANSPORT IS
NOT USUALLY GEARED FOR TOURISTS.

SURREYS: A HORSE AND SURREY MAY BE RENTED AT A FIXED HOURLY
RATE. THE DRIVER WILL POINT OUT ALL THE MOST IMPORTANT AND
BEAUTIFUL THINGS TO SEE. DON'T TRY TO BARGAIN AS IT WON'T
WORK.

YOU MAY CHARTER SMALL AIRPLANES AT NASSAU AND FREEPORT FOR
INTER ISLAND TRANSPORTATION.

SEA

MAIL BOATS ARE THE CHEAPEST WAY TO REACH THE FAMILY
ISLANDS. THE LENGTH OF THE VOYAGE WILL DEPEND ON THE
DISTANCE AND WEATHER. THESE BOATS ARE OFTEN FULL, SO IT IS
BETTER TO BE AT THE QUAY EARLY TO GET A REASONABLE PLACE TO
SIT OR EVEN TO GET ABOARD.
