Do I want one? Do I need one? Are they sparse? Cost? Do they have drink holders? If so, can you fit a huge Painkiller?

(Staying at Caribe Resort 12/26 - 1/3)

We got one for a week and loved it. It's really good to at least spend one day exploring the island. We had a blast. I believe it's $250 to rent one for a whole week. They switch them out and charge them up for you, and also come get you if you have a flat, get stuck in mud or break down. We used Monchos, next to the beer distributorship.

Monchos has relocated their rental office to the ex-Rental Center, 100 yards south of Tropic Air terminal. Very convenient, although they will deliver a cart to you at your hotel.

Is this your first time there? If so, i think only one day with a cart is better. use the taxi or water taxi as it will be cheaper and you will get a better feel for the island, local happenings, and "La Gente". They will pick you up at your request. also most resorts [caribe or caribe island where we are staying?] provide free bikes. Especially post hurricane the road past the cut will be dicey

Frank's right...the cart is cool if you're going up north of the cut, or you have a trip or a date planned that you would rather not pedal to for fear of getting sweaty; but a week on one will be just like it is in the States: everything will be cruising by at 20mph...what's the point of your trip?!

#32301 - 12/14/00 10:37 AM Re: Golf Carts
I'm not going to get into the topic again because last time it turned into a acrimonious free-for-all...but have you tried to drive a golf cart 20 mph on a San Pedro street lately? Your butt can get going 20 mph, but at that point the cart is bouncing straight up and down at 15.

I personally "wouldn't leave home without one", cart that is. We always have one, otherwise the ice melts before we get back from the Island Market.

Rental carts won't do over 12MPH. Speed limits are 10MPH in town and 15MPH elsewhere.
And anyone who prefers to use a cart is free to do so.
