So if you’re familiar with Ambergris Caye  then you’re pretty much aware that the primary mode of transportation around here are foot, bikes and ofcourse-golf carts…There are no golf courses but these small four seaters (and sometimes six) are the perfect way to get around on our small isla! Not to mention, they are pretty fun!

Most companies only require a valid driver’s license (yes, you DO  need a license to drive a golf cart ) and a credit card for payment. Then after getting a quick rundown on our local traffic policies you are good to go.

If you’re travelling North of town and heading to cool places like ,Pirate’s Treasure, Palapa Bar, Marbucks or the secret beach (check with your company before heading there- it’s a bit off the path) you’ll be crossing the Sir Barry Bowen Bridge which carries a toll fee of $10BZ round trip.

Palapa Bar, just one of the many cool places north of the bridge!

Explore south of town and check out The Rum + Bean coffee bar at Mahogany Bay. If you are looking to dine south of town be sure to check out Black Orchid in Mosquito Coast.


Black Orchid Restaurant south of San Pedro Town- SURELY worth the drive!

Or have a night out on the town and pick and choose from places like Hurricane’s, Estel’s (great for breakfast), Elvi’s Kitchen, El Fogon,  or try pupusas at Pupuseria Salvadorena !

Whatever and where ever you choose to explore, be sure to adhere to traffic laws and remember DON’t DRINK and DRIVE.

About the Author: Tamara Sniffin

I’m a sucker for a fuzzy face, a feathered face, a face with fins or even one with scales! I am in love with the creatures and the flora that are synonymous with Belize and every opportunity I have to learn more about them and explore their wild habitats I am there! I’m the happiest when I’m snorkeling the reef and swimming with turtles, however my passion is not just limited to critters! Laced throughout this compact jungle gem of a country live the Kriol, Maya, Garifuna, Mestizo and Spanish people, and experiencing each culture, especially their celebrations is one of my favorite pastimes.
