4WD Car Rental

Is it really necessary to have a 4WD car in Santa Teresa and surrounding towns? We are used to driving on terrible dirt roads in smaller cars. Would a sedan be alright?

most people who live there drive regular cars. are you going in the rainy season? if so you might want to consider a small 4x4 like a terios or jimny. still not necessary, but just in case.

We so seldom see sedans and low-rider cars. It is advisable to rent a 4x4, not for the 4-wheel drive, but for the clearance. Trust me, you will be happy you rented a 4x4....I can't believe people drive the roads down here in 4x2 cars without damaging the undercarriage!!! A Terios or Jimney would be fine...they have a bit more clearance but definitely enough to get over the humps and bumps and potholes.

If you drive slow...you can get away with a samall car...of course better with a 4x4...but really is not necessary!
