In general, the roads pose no major problems. Despite the tropical climate the roads are in relatively good condition due to proper and constant maintenance. Like most areas of the world, while you are in the vicinity of the capital city Pointe-à-Pitre, you will encounter traffic jams. There are the occasional roads less travelled that may not have a constant maintenance but most of the cars rented out are suitable for all types of road conditions on the island.
