Rent a Bike or Scooter in Belize
If you’re looking for a cool and fun way to explore Belize, one of the best ways is by renting your own motorbike or scooter. Visitors who are 18 years old or older and possess a valid driver’s license in their home country can rent a scooter, and visitors who are age 21 or older and have a valid motorcycle license can rent a dirtbike.
Many visitors prefer two-wheeled vehicles to explore Belize instead of cars because it’s an excellent way to enjoy an unfiltered experience of the natural beauty found everywhere in the country. Whether it’s tooling along the beach or heading down a jungle trail, two-wheeled vehicles allow visitors to go just about anywhere in the country, including wilderness sanctuaries, animal refuges, remote villages, national parks, and ancient Maya cities.
Although Belize has a national network of paved highways, many of the smaller roads and byways in the country are unpaved, making them difficult to negotiate with a standard car. But when you have a scooter or dirtbike, it’s quite easy to “get lost” in Belize and find remote, beautiful spots far off the beaten path where most visitors go.
Two-wheeled vehicles are also becoming an increasingly popular choice for visitors because the minimize the impact on the environment. Using far less fuel than an SUV or car, two-wheeled vehicles are efficient, fun ways to get outdoors and explore the many wonderful sights in Belize. Two-wheeled vehicles are convenient, safe, and easy to park. And because fuel is more expensive in Belize than the United States (averaging around $5/gallon), a two-wheeled vehicle is much more affordable to operate.
More than half of Belize’s mainland is in the form of a national park, protected wilderness area, or animal refuge, but these are often located far from the main highways. Instead of having to worry about navigating sometimes steep, rutted roads with a car, a two-wheeled vehicle like a scooter or dirtbike makes the journey easy and exciting. And when you don’t have a glass barrier between you and the outside world, you can more easily appreciate the sights, sounds, and the heavy perfume of wild nature at its finest.
