Renting a Bike or Scooter in Aruba

See the nautral beauty of Aruba from a bike or moped


Having Fun in Aruba
 

Bikes and mopeds can provide excellent opportunities for vacationers to get off the beaten path and explore more remote areas of Aruba.

Due to the island's relatively flat terrain and cool trade winds, these are some of the most popular forms of personal transportation on the island. Bikes and mopeds can take you on and off road to explore everything the island has to offer. Harley-Davidson riders will even find that motorcycles are very popular on Aruba, as well.

Because Aruba's bikes and mopeds are so popular, it is a good idea to make reservations, particularly during the heavily-traveled peak season.

If you are intrigued by the idea of feeling the wind on your face as you move along, there are a variety of different places that can help.

If you're ready to go riding, you should consider George's Motorcycles. One of the top scooter rental agencies in Oranjestad is George's Motorcycles. Check out their scooter rentals which are even cheaper than the bigger motorcycles. They are located in Socotoro, in western Aruba.

A third option is Active Aruba Vacations. Trek and Marin bikes are what Active Aruba keeps in stock. You'll also be able to sign up for guided tours if you don't feel like hitting the streets on your own. They're located in the vicinity of Palm Beach, in northwestern Aruba.

Because Aruba is a busy island, it is generally not recommended that vacationers rent bikes or mopeds as a primary mode of transportation. While they are an ideal form of leisure transportation, traffic and street conditions can be very confusing for foreigners. Driving is done on the right side of the street, and it is not unusual to have heavy traffic on the roads during rush hour.

When vacationing on Aruba, bikes and mopeds are both excellent ways to see the island's more remote areas, offering vacationers a great chance to enjoy the fresh air and famous scenery. Reasonable rates make two-wheeling adventures available to almost everyone, and excursions to the Aruban countryside are made more pleasant by the independence allowed by bicycles and mopeds.
