BIKING on Holbox Island?

Everyone talks about golf cart rentals on the island, but my boyfriend and I really like biking as a way to get around. Is there a place to rent bicycles? Is the sand very deep that it would be difficult to ride a bike?

I would imagine that there are bike rentals, I didn't notice but then again, I wasn't looking. Along the main streets (all sand) you shouldn't have any problems at all - the sand is all packed down if you know what I mean. Even along the beach, I don't think you'd have any difficulties. Have a great time.

There are two places on the island to rent bikes. One is Colibri, a restaurant, in the plaza. I believe they are something like 20pesos per hour. The other place is Puesto del Sol just off the square, at 10 pesos per hour.

And no bikes are a perfect way to travel about.

Make sure your bikes are in good ride-able shape. My husband had problems with his bike (not sure where he rented from) - I think the chain kept falling off or something. He rides at home all the time and knows how to fix a broken-down bike, but I think the salt air had taken it's toll on the rental bike.
