Bicycles, mopeds, and scooters offer a welcome alternative to taxis and rental cars for those who want to avoid high travel costs while enjoying a closer proximity to nature. These two wheeled vehicles, whether motorized or not, offer a great way to get out and about in the tropics.

Active tourists will jump at the chance to be able to explore the natural beauty of Turks and Caicos on two wheels with the power of their own body propelling them forward. Still others enjoy the feeling of riding around town in the open air, but don’t want to do the work. For these vacationers, mopeds and scooters offer the perfect solution.

The cost of a bike or moped rental will vary by rental agency, but you can expect to pay around $16(USD) a day for a bike, and about $40(USD) for a moped.
