renting scooters

Is it easy to rent a scooter? I'm staying at the Cat, where do I get a scooter from and are the roads safe.

It's VERY unsafe. Don't do it

I agree, not a good idea. Most everything is walkable in Puerto Aventuras.

Not sure where you want to scoot. In & around the gated community of Puerto Aventuras is safe traffic-wise, but very unsafe road condition-wise. The streets are slippery cobblestone, with lots of speed bumps ("topes") and water runoff gutters. Worst during/after a rain. All VERY unfriendly to scooters operated by tourists.

If you venture out of Puerto Aventuras, it's high speed highway. You could ride on the shoulder, but you'll share that with the huge trucks, loose rocks, debris, and exhaust.

Suggest you walk down to the parking lot on the Yucatan side, and sign out a FREE BICYCLE to tootle round PA, the marina, the sidestreets, and shops. No worry about parking your bike unlocked. Nobody will steal it. Just remember the ID number & where you put it...the later comes into play especially when alcohol is involved! : )
