We can help you get a golf cart at a reduced rate and can facilitate the successful purchase/long term lease also.

Yup, and nobody, but nobody is keeping up with you two on your bikes!! Double advantage, no spend on pricey maintenance on a golf cart AND keep fit! Kudos Emily & Barry!

Thanks! Biking on this island is a breeze compared to the hills we used to crank up in North Carolina. grin

My wife and I are planning on relocating to the area in september. Wondering if we should purchase bikes here in the states and have them shipped to the island or should we just wait and purchase some there? Any input would be appreciated.

we will definitely just try to work with the delivery and maybe a friendly neighbor will loan out a cart when we need to move anything big! It's in the plans to eventually stay long enough to get residency, but until then, we will make due.

and to answer your question khsmith5899, its definitely better to just buy one in ambergris, and you will avoid paying import duty and probably pay less overall. We paid about $150 USD each brand new from castillos hardware store for the bikes we had. They are the nice big beach cruisers with big tires and one speed. they also have serial numbers on the frame, so you can identify if they are lifted. (if it is found).

Thanks for the advise cayemaster. Which forum should I be looking at for general questions about relocating to the island?

I would just buy a bike here. Around $150 US each. You can sell them at the end of your stay. Buy locks, lights and basket. Take note of the serial numbers too.

we rent from Choles when we are there for 3 months. 600.00 US a month. Might be less for 6 month. They have a web site if you want to ask them.
