Even though you might not know your way around, Ambergris Caye is easy to navigate so even if you do make a wrong turn, it will not be long before you get yourself back to a major road. Just be sure to pay attention to road signs as many streets in town are one way. There are several options for renting golf carts including Ocean Breeze Golf Cart Rental (tele 501-206-2575) or ATM Golf Cart Rental (tele 501-226-4803).By Walking
