I'd check with your resort to see if they have bikes. Quite a few do.

You'll find the ride to/from town a bit long the first time, but thereafter quite a breeze. And there are lots of good bars to stop at along the way! Best have a flashlight with you that actually light your path, even though if it's really dark you may end up walking and pushing the bikes. I've often made that trip after dark.

My wife is not going to like this ... running around in golf carts is one of her favorite parts of our trips down there. We will be there on Saturday with the kids and are staying up North at Captain Morgans.

Before you ruin your wife's trip...You can take golf carts up north if you can handle the roads. We do it quite a bunch. Like it was said earlier, after Grand Caribe the roads deteriorate and get much more bumpy and sometimes wet, but very do-able (sp). And again, like it was said before, it is $5 USD each way/ $10 R/T to cross the bridge. But once you are in town the golf cart is good to go. From my personal experience I would say it takes about 15-20 minutes from the bridge to Grand Caribe and another 20 to Captain Morgan's.

The road gets better and better , but still a dirt road and the rain often closes it from puddles to deep and mud.
The Coastal Express service was good and now is even better. cheaper , running regular and on time. it just can't be beat.

Is there a monthly or yearly pass for the bridge?

Monthly golf cart pass for the bridge is available from the town hall on Front Street it costs BZ150 for the month. So if you are doing more than 15 round trips per month it makes sense to get one

I'm pretty sure it is $5 BZ each way/ $10 BZ R/T, rather than USD. (Just to clarify for newbies...)

A couple of the golf cart companies are now asking renters to sign a waiver if they go further than Grand Caribe, which basically says you will be financially liable for any damage and should you require towing there will be a fee charged to get you back to town.

When we were there in Feb, we drove a six seater all the way to the Blue reef where the road ended then to the beach and farther north a long ways. Once we were about half a mile north of Capt Morgans the road became better than than the road south of town. That was a total of 8 miles north of Morgans, and only about a half a mile of bad road.
