To ATV, or not to ATV?

I will be in St. Barths on a cruise ship stop on Jan 11, 2012. I will be there from approx 9am to 6pm. I am thinking of renting an ATV from St. Barth Adventure for the day. Does anybody have any reasons why I should NOT do this? Would a car rental be cheaper/easier? I do not have experience with ATVs, but I do have experience with motorcycles. Any suggestions on lesser known places that I should try to visit?

They scare the beejesus out of me and the roads can be challenging anyway. Depends on what is your comfort zone.

I would rent a car if I were you. Roads are very steep and curvy, so there is a reasonable risk of capsizing on an ATV, if you aren' t a pro. And certainly no off-road driving in saint barth. Don't know about ATV prices but I think cars will be the same. Cars in Saint Barth are small jeep so also fun to drive.

If you ask any car rental agency, they will deliver your car by the dock.
