Rental Cars on Ambergris Caye

Rental cars may not be available on Ambergris Caye, but golf cart rentals sure are

In part to maintain the untouched appearance of the island and in part because few people deem them to be necessary, renting a car on Ambergris Caye simply is not a popular way of getting around. Instead of being able to rent a full-sized vehicle during your stay, when you're in need of wheels you'll have to rent a golf cart.

Renting a Car

There are at least half a dozen golf cart rental agencies located on Ambergris Caye, making it easy to rent one, though in many case the cost can be almost as expensive as a full-sized vehicle. In order to rent a golf cart, you have to follow the same rules that you would if you were to rent a full-sized vehicle, including the fact that you need a driver's license and to follow posted speed limits.

Take a look at this table that shows the many area rental agencies.
