Places to stay/camp

Good bush camping is hard to find, but people are very welcoming. Lots of fairly cheap-looking hostals.
Other information GMT-6 hrs.  No visas necessary for UK or Irish passport holders. Carnet not needed, but importation of vehicle is free, and very simple. Bizarre "exit tax" of about $20pp is payable on leaving the country (at least you are informed about this when entering). Internet in every town.

Not very good roads, but the main routes are ok.

Extremely friendly people - most people wave as you drive past, everyone wants to stop and chat. One of our favourite countries, despite it's being expensive, and despite lukewarm reports from other travellers.
