Before you pack your bags and head off on a new adventure, let us give you a few basic details about Cajamarca. This part of Peru is home to around 135,000 people. If you want to discover what exciting things there are to see here, you could always have a chat to some of the friendly locals.
Here's a round-up of our top suggestions if you're looking to bag the best deal on a rental car:
That all said, Cajamarca boasts plenty of rural landscapes, forests, and mountains. Many eager adventurers get out of the city to see those jaw-dropping scenes. If that sounds enticing, go for an SUV or a full-size car. Even if you're not planning to get off the beaten track, you'll be glad you have the extra legroom.
You'll be pleased to hear that there's a great range of both economy and high-end vehicles to rent in Cajamarca. What you go for will depend on how much you're willing to spend and what you plan to do. Prestige vehicles are all about comfort and class. If you want to indulge yourself, why not pick an SUV with all the bells and whistles, or perhaps a stylish mid-sized sedan? Otherwise, if you're just after a car to whiz around town in as cheaply as possible, you're better off choosing a versatile compact vehicle (or something else that won't break the bank).
When driving somewhere new, you'll want to have a good understanding of the local traffic rules. Here's what you need to know to jump behind the wheel in Cajamarca with ease:
You'll be motoring along the right side of the road in Cajamarca. Even though it may seem similar to home, it's wise to drive with extra care in places you've never been.
The residential areas in Cajamarca have a 50 km/h speed limit. Outside these areas, the speed limits typically range between 30 km/h and 100 km/h.
One of two things will happen. Your chosen rental car company may bill the amount stated on the fine to your credit card. This is the usual practice. Or it may forward your contact information to the relevant local agency so the fine is sent directly to you.
Provided you have hands-free functions like Bluetooth enabled, you can lawfully use your cell phone while driving around Cajamarca. Just make sure you keep concentrating on the road.
When operating a vehicle in Cajamarca, it's against the law to have a BAC (blood alcohol content) above 0.05%. Thinking of having a wine or two with lunch or dinner? Consider using a ride-sharing service or taking a taxi.
