Shazam Offline

I'll be staying on Ambergris Caye (first time)in April.
Looking for suggestions on places to rent a couple of bikes or possibly a golf cart for our week long stay. We'll be on the north end of the island about 3mi from town.
Also should we have any safety concerns travelling the road after dark to and from town?
Lastly--we were thinking of doing a zip-line tour--any suggestions?

Thanks

from what i have heard you will be renting bikes.golf carts tend to stay to the south as the roads up north are very bad.

I live in whats considered north and go to town about twice a day.
It seems just to easy to hop on the Coastal Express or Island Ferry, they come to the end of all the docks every hour and are cheap.
The dirt/mud road isn't worth a golf cart experience.
Biking along the beach path is cool.

The golf cart "road" is OK as far as Grand Caribe after that is gets really rough. As Elbert said Coastal Express or Island Ferry is the way to go. Our condo is at Grand Caribe we use bikes most of the time up and down the beach path. If we go into town for the evening we bike into town and then at night we take Costal Express back with our bikes.

Not entirely sure since we are never out late. I think the last ferry leaves about 11.30 or about 1am at the weekends check with Coastal Express
You can rent bikes at Joes if you are coming from the North its first right after Police Station/BTL just before you get to Pirates Pizza

Also note that the bridge over the cut is $5 U.S. for a round trip over it. So between that, the cart, the distance, and the roads you are probably better off with the water taxis.

I heard there are private water taxis going well into the night, but you should check with the place you're staying at to see if there's a complementary one during regular hours.

So is there a $5 charge for walking or riding a bike over the bridge?
And if so is it $5 per person?

Walking is free. I think it is $1Bz each way for a bike.
