Greetings! Long time reader, first time poster, great place BTW. I will be flying into AC in about a month and was wondering if there was a place to rent an ATV. I tried a search and didn't come up with any place. I was there last year and went the golf cart route, which was great until we got up north. My brother was there a week ago and claimed the road had degraded even more.

I figured if there was a place that rented one, I would do that, if not, I guess I will make sure to get a cart with the ATV tires and bring a life jacket. wink

Thanks in advance for your help, it's much appreciated.

I thought I would give this one more bump.

I take it from the lack of response, I better start looking around for a golf cart? LOL

Cheers,

Greg

I don't believe that you can rent an ATV, rent a golf cart with a gas engine [not electric] and all terrain tires, you should be able to make it quite a ways up north.


Reality..What a concept!

Thanks for the reply papashine, that's what I did last year and will likely end up doing again. I just figured if there was a place that rented any kind of ATV, I would go that route, but I thought it would be a long shot at best.

Let's all hope that ATV rentals NEVER come to AC!

There was one last year, but it closed.

Why should we ALL hope? I certainly don't smile

Most if not all Golf Cart Rentals are not supposed to be taken north of Palapa Bar, and for those who choose Sundivers, Journeys End, Las Terrazas or any of the fine homes for rent north of Palapa Bar, a more sturdy vehicle would be a great and welcome alternative to a 2 hour wait for the water taxi.

I should also question if the term ATV is correct or if in fact UTVs (like a Polaris Ranger or a Yamaha Rhino) are what is being discussed here? If they are ever put into a rental fleet there is a good case for ensuring the vehicles are fitted with a governor to keep speeds below 20mph


It's rarely rocket science, it's usually just math: then again if you can't do the math.......

Thankfully! Most of the time they were used to terrorize people on the beach.

Talk about oppressive government.

I thought the isloation is why you northern folks lived / rented way up there. I remember someone here saying they prefered the water taxis and didn't want the road "traffic" up north.
