Belize & Ambergris Caye Help

How do I get around town?

Valid driver licenses are required to rent a vehicle. Golfcarts are considered vehicles, so the drivers must possess a valid driver’s license - please don’t let your unlicensed children drive - golf carts may be cute, but they are the same as an automobile on a highway. ’Average’ price for golfcart rental by the day is about $40US for 8 hrs. Traffic laws are similar to those throughout the world. San Pedro only has a few traffic signs, so use caution (and common sense). Most of the carts are electric.


Golf cart rentals are available from several locations.

There are several places that rent bicycles. The most reasonable one we found is Joe’s Bike Shop, a great place to rent a bike. He is just down the street north from Ruby’s and across the street from the Pier Lounge. He offers his bikes at $12 Belize dollars for 3 hours which is only $6 us dollars and the longer you have the it gets even cheaper, $39 for the week, day rates are $9. Take a walk towards Ruby’s Cafe and if you ask anyone they’ll point just down the street to Joe’s bike shop.

Please note that bicycles must have an attached bright white light to be ridden at night.

Although there are some privately owned cars and trucks on the island, rental cars are not available on Ambergris Caye. Golf carts rent for around US$60 for a 24-hour day and about US$40 for an 8-hour rental. Moncho’s Rentals, Island (formerly Ramon’s) Rentals near the SunBreeze Hotel, Cholo’s, and Polo’s are among the larger renters. Valid driver licenses are required to rent carts.

Diesel is sold for 1/3 less than gasoline. Every station here pumps diesel, as diesel vehicles get much better mileage than gasoline.
