Due to the sometimes rough and unpredictable road surfaces, it's best to go for a vehicle with more ground clearance when choosing your Ilhéus car hire model. Get something like a small SUV or a cross hatchback if you're alone or with one other person, and a proper SUV if you're with a group of friends or your family. As tempting as it might be, don't hire a luxury sedan or a sports car, as you won't get the chance to derive much satisfaction from them on these roads. One last thing to bear in mind, is that you'll drive on the unfamiliar right-hand side of the road.
The speed limit in the built-up areas of Ilhéus is 50 km/h (about 31 mph). Further out than that, you can drive at up to 80 km/h (about 50 mph) on streets that are larger and don't have much pedestrian or bicycle traffic. Once on the highway, you can travel at either 110 km/h (about 68 mph) or 120 km/h (about 75 mph). Keep a look-out for the signs. This may be a holiday city, but there are plenty of speed cameras around, so don't take any chances.
