Bicycle/motorcycle/ATV rental


I saw on another Santa Teresa topic that "Wefish" mentioned renting bicycles. He may have been talking about motorcycles. Either way, I am staying at Casa Marbella in November and want to surf a lot. At beach breaks like Playa Carmen and Santa Teresa, I like to check the surfing conditions up and down the beach each morning before I decide where to surf since conditions change due to tide, swell direction and the shifting sand bottom. Can I do that by renting a bicycle? If so, is the main road ok to ride on with a surfboard or is it very busy and narrow. More importantly, can I ride to the surf and leave a rental bike on the beach or road while I surf or will it likely be gone when I get out of the water. If I got an ATV instead, do surfers normally ride it to the place they want to surf and leave it parked there while they are in the water? I was thinking that these two beaches stretch so long that if I tried to do this all on foot that I would end up surfing based on proximity to the hotel instead of based on where the best conditions are. However, I could be wrong about the actual walking distance. All of your help is greatly appreciated. James

the Quad Rental Center is about 100ft or less North from Super Ronny, in Playa Carmen. I do not have their phone number, but they are really nice and serious people, me and my guests totally recommend them and their ATV.

Good luck! enjoy your stay in our beautiful town!!!
