How to Rent a Golf Cart for Your Island Vacation

Isla Holbox sunset

A journey to the tropical island of Holbox island is a delightful adventure right from the get-go. Holbox is a magical destination where shoes are optional, all strays dogs have a name, and every evening is a spectacular display of color and light as the sun sets over the Gulf of Mexico.

The town is a time capsule

Isla Holbox is where the laid-back Caribbean lifestyle reigns. Expect friendly smiles from the locals, slow lazy mornings, pristine waters and delicious meals while you decide which activity you’ll embark next. You can go paddle boarding, kiteboarding, horseback riding, swim with whale sharks and, of course, a golf cart ride around the island.

Locating and connecting with a golf cart rental service may be an arduous a task. The infrastructure of the island is such that the local service takes every inquiry one at a time based on availability at the moment.

Patience is a virtue and the best things in life are worth waiting

A google search for golf cart rentals in Holbox will result in a handful of websites offering golf cart rentals for an average daily rate of $80 USD. However, clicking on these sites will most likely lead to a vacation rental that will request you send an email while you patiently wait for a reply that may or may not arrive within a week.

Fortunately, having a golf cart ready and waiting for you as you disembark the ferry is not the only way to move around the island. Upon arrival, there will be a line of taxi’s that are quite economical and more than glad to take you to your hotel, villa or golf cart rental. Taxis can range from $5 – 25 USD depending on where your vacation rental is located. Staying close to town is highly recommended as you won’t need a means of transportation given you’ll be within walking distance to all the great eateries and shops in town.

Should you be the kind of traveler that must have everything planned out before you set out to the airport your very best option is to request a golf cart when you make your reservation so the property can do their very best to have this ready for you.
