I'll be visiting for several days in January, and I'll be spending the majority of my time on Basse Terre.
I don't care about car amenities, and I will be traveling solo, so my first instinct is to book the cheapest thing - a mini car w/ standard transmission. Like a VW Up or Renault Twingo.
But I'm not just going to a beach resort. I'd like to be able to drive across the island, to reach some of the interior attractions in parc nationale, and I don't know how steep the roads are.
I'm curious to hear from others who've visited that area. Would it be worth spending the extra money to get something with a larger engine, or even a diesel engine (more torque)? Like a Sandero or Clio?
