Traffic rules

  • Traffic coming from the right has no precedence. Traffic driving straight through has precedence at both intersections and T-junctions.

  • Keep your distance, it is not customary for everyone to fix their lights or use their flashing lights to let you know in which direction they’re going.  

  • Within residential areas you can drive 40 km/h and outside this area you are allowed to drive 60 km/h unless indicated otherwise.

  • Be careful at roundabouts, each roundabout has its own traffic rules. Keep an eye on the traffic signs to see if you have precedence or not.

  • The roads can be very slippery when it has rained, therefore keep sufficient distance and make sure to adjust your speed.

  • Never leave anything in your car, not even for a few minutes. Before you know it, your window is smashed and your stuff is gone. If it happens, there is a police station for tourists at Mambo Beach Boulevard.

  • There is a steering lock in all our rental cars. When you park your car somewhere, put the steering lock on the steering wheel to prevent car theft.

  • When refuelling, you must pay before you can fill up your tank. If you have paid too much, you can recollect that amount at the cashier afterwards.
