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.
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.
