My husband and I (mid-50s, fairly active) will be staying at Pelican Reef Villas in late January 2012, it will be our first trip to Belize/Ambergris Caye. We are wondering if we should rent a golf cart for the week or just by the day as needed. It's not a budget issue, but we don't want to pay for a week's rental to have it sit unused.
We will mainly be doing water activities during the day - diving, snorkeling, kayaking, sailing, etc. - but as PRV does not have a restaurant we will need to head into town or other resorts for lunch & dinner. Can we rely on the water taxis to get back and forth to town for meals? Are there any restaurants we can walk to, no more than a mile each way?
Also I'm a little concerned about personal safety in the evenings, traveling alone (two of us) in a golf cart in the dark and/or walking along the beach at night. We've traveled the Caribbean extensively and never had an issue, but we've always traveled in a car.
Thanks for your help!
