As with most places in Latin America, some common-sense precautions should be used if you are going to try hitchhiking as a means of getting around. It should probably be avoided by anyone traveling alone, especially women. Even in greater numbers you will be taking a risk. You should offer compensation at the end of the ride, although the driver may not always take it. Hitchhiking, although not widely practiced, is more common in the countryside, where the bus service is not as frequent. It is unwise to look for rides on major highways or in urban areas.
