You shouldn't really have a problem getting around on the island. To start, you would most likely be taking a ferry to get to the island. If you fly in, you can get a taxi from the airport. Once you are on the island itself, you can either get around with taxis or you can use the very affordable public transportation system of buses. Though the bus system isn't too large and doesn't go to all parts of the island, you can still get around with it. One thing you need to keep in mind is that many of the services on the island work mainly during the tourist season. In the off season, you won't be able to get around as easily. It's not a bad idea to rent a car or a mo-ped if you want to explore the island on your own, but it is not completely necessary. If you do go off on your own, make sure you have a map and good directions. When you get out in the country and away from the built up areas, it can seem like you are the only one on the island. This can be good, but it can also be bad, especially if you are lost or have a flat tire. The roads on the island are better towards the built up areas, but not as good further out in the country.
