My wife and I will be staying near Maxwell Beach nest month. Our only plans so far is to attend at least one or two Jazz performances at the Jazz festival,go to Bridgetown, Harrison Cave, and take in a little beach time. Initially we will not be renting a car. My hope is to use the bus system along with taxi's. Should I rent a car for a couple days and if so, are there any rental agencies near Maxwell beach?

In addition to the above very loose itinerary, any and all suggestions for exploration and fun would be appreciated. We are not the type to stay at the beach all day. Thank you in advance.

You should definately rent a car and explore the rest of the island. I only rented a car for two days while i was there. The island is small so i got a lot of sightseeing done in that time. Driving(on the LEFT!) was my fear before going, and ended up being one of my favorite things i did. Getting lost and asking locals for directions was just as enjoyable. Just wander and stumble upon your own discoveries.Check out the North and East coasts, definately stopping in Bathsheba. Have fun and stay LEFT!

I agree with what al (above) says. If you do rent a car then you don't have to really worry about proximity of the rental office to where you are staying as the more reputable companies all deliver the car to you. I'd recommend either Executive rentals or Stoutes as 2 of the better ones. Also better book now, as you are coming in high season and it can be very hard to get a car if you leave it until the last minute.
