Are you looking for a quiet getaway on the beach? If you're reading this, it's very likely that you're planning a vacation to San Pedro Island.
San Pedro is a small coastal community in San Pedro Town, Ambergris Caye, an island off the coast of Belize. The entire island is commonly known as "San Pedro," however it's only the largest municipality on the island. Ambergris Caye continues north for many miles into Mexico's neighboring territory.
Isn't it possible for me to walk around the island?
While the word "town" may imply that San Pedro is tiny, in reality, the island is rather lengthy. If you're staying at a hotel or resort in the city's heart and don't want to explore, you can easily walk around. The majority of restaurants, cafés, and other activities are located right in downtown San Pedro.
Why would I need a golf cart in San Pedro?
Ambergris Caye (the island it's on) is quite large, with a population of approximately 1000 people. Ambergris Caye is Belize's longest island by far, at 25 miles in length. While the majority of the major services are within the city limits, the majority of the large-scale resorts are north of town. If you're visiting one of these resorts and wish to see the town's major attractions, renting a golf cart is highly suggested. If you'd like to explore popular sites in the north of the island, we suggest hiring a golf cart.
Is renting a golf cart on a per-hour, weekly, or monthly basis possible?
Golf cart rentals are available on a per-hour, weekly, or monthly basis and range in price from a few dollars to slightly more expensive with longer rentals becoming less costly. It's worth considering what you want to do during your holiday so you can figure out what length of the rental would be best for your plans. If you intend to go on several day excursions with a tour company, you will generally not need your own vehicle on those days since all of the transportation from your resort may be included. Although you may not need a golf cart if you intend to take advantage of the pool and onsite facilities, you will still probably want one. Some areas of the island, such as Secret Beach on the lee side, require a golf cart to reach, so this will be taken into account during your rental period. Having a golf cart on hand ensures that you do not have to adhere to the water taxi schedule and can dine wherever you choose.
What types of golf carts are available and what is the best choice for you?
Golf carts come in two distinct sizes: one that seats four people and one that seats six. The four-seater has a forward-facing bench and a rear-facing couch directly behind it. There are two forward-facing seats in the six-seater, as well as one additional rear-facing seat at the very back. The number of persons traveling with you will, naturally, influence the cart's size.
When visiting San Pedro, renting a golf cart makes perfect sense and allows you to explore whenever you want. It's also a novel approach to travel, which enhances the drive-in for dinner into an entertaining side adventure. Rent one on your next Belize vacation and enjoy everything the island has to offer.
