Rent a vehicle in Boa Vista

Renting a quad or a car in Boavista is easy if you book in advance. The island is very large and most of the hotels are located at a great distance from the cities and major points of interest. It will almost always be necessary to call a taxi to take a tour outside or to book an excursion that has transportation included.

The roads of Boavista are winding and wild. The only paved road runs through the island from north to south, passing through the airport. The rest of the routes are dirt, rocky or sandy. A part of the wonder of the island is precisely the nature that still preserves and protects much of the territory, whose points of interest can be reached only with suitable vehicles.


– There is a lot of demand for this type of service, we recommend booking in advance or the day you arrived.
– If you rent a petrol or diesel vehicle, be aware that the only two petrol stations are in Sal-Rei.
– The sun is very strong, even if it is not too hot. Bring sunscreen, comfortable shoes (or flip-flops) and sunglasses.
– A bandana will be very useful, especially for some paths where it can be a little dusty.
– Always tell someone what ride you intend to do. It will be easier to find you in case of problems.

Discover the island aboard a powerful quad that perfectly adapts to any terrain of Boavista! The half-day rental allows you to see 2 or 3 points of interest depending on how long you want to stop. The full-day gives you that leeway to include lunch and return before evening.
