Best bike rental downtown

Hey guys I’m looking for any recommendations to rent some bikes, the best price and well maintained bikes. We are staying almost mid island.

Thanks :)

I'm only responding so your post doesn't get lost in the shuffle. I have yet to see a decent bike on the island, the ones I have looked at are single speed and don't seem to fit the riders very well. I'm sure there are good ones out there and hopefully someone can help you out. Good luck!

I seem to remember pretty new bikes next door to Coco's golf carts. Kind of by Jax. I could be wrong. Also on Medina there were some shops with decent looking bikes. Always check it out carefully before taking it because some are really in sad shape. There also used to be a rental on the corner of Matamoros and Guerrero.

We saw bikes at Luxury if I recall (over between Ixchel and Playa Arena). I didn't rent one, so I can't speak to how good they are. I think I would talk to the person you are renting from, first. They may have an "in" with a place that has decent bikes or may even own bikes you can use.

Good luck!

Not sure if you have been to Isla, and I have no idea of your skill level, but IMO a bike could get very sketchy in certain areas and definitely after dark.

Be safe!

Never been to Isla but have done the bike thing along beach road in Tulum at night and during the day, yes the roads are super narrow there and can be a bit frightening if you aren’t skilled. Just wanted to get some exercise during the day while getting around. Seems like bikes are not a big thing on Isla #welp

The beach roads in Tulum are a good start, then add Tourists in carts that go 15 mph being passed by everything else! Its pretty wild.

Just have to be careful. We rode bikes(provided by the place we're staying) from centro to Mango Cafe today. Wasn't too bad.

Thanks guys I’ll have a look and judge by looking around whether it’s doable or better to just walk :)
