Driving in Caribbean Islands

The main reason for the development of DriverAbroad.com was the lack of a single resource providing all the driving advice and information you’ll need to plan a self drive trip Abroad .The information provided on the site was gathered via research initially in 2011/12 and though I try and keep it updated as much as possible, its not my full time job, and in a rapidly changing world, situations will change meaning info provided may be out of date. Therefore please use the site as an approximate guide, and in conjunction with other resources in order to form your view on driving conditions, roads etc. –

The links below provide driving and car rental info for all the countries and islands in the Caribbean, from Trinidad in the South to the Bahamas and Cuba in the North.

Many visitors rent a car for a day or two on a beach holiday to the islands and are often surprised at the contrast between the resorts and the laidback towns which lay off the well trodden tourist trail. Driving style away from the main towns is usually relaxed, but expect some erratic driving from the locals and some pot holed, narrow and winding roads on many of the Islands. Also you may come across a combination which is quite unique to a number of Caribbean Islands- Left hand drive cars on left hand driving roads, which can make overtaking a challenge!
