I would defiantly say hire a car, as you don't know what's round the corner. We took some older friends with us, and my old mate was rushed to Hospital one night and was there for 3 days. We were able to visit every day and take his wife. A taxi would have cost a fortune. Now this is a great tip.

Parking in Palma can be a challenge. We parked beyond the outer limits where parking is free and walked through the town. If you are in good health, walking is the best way to see Palma. The street signs are not always there at every corner so it can be a challenge at times, And get out of town and see the mountains and the countryside. We especially enjoyed our visit to Lluc monastery and hiking in the mountains.
