This was great fun. I had never riden a scooter before and so this was an adventure for me. My husband trained me and I practiced for an hour before heading out. I was amazed as to how much there was to riding this scooter. We travelled around the island on the quiet streets for about 60 kms. I would definitely do this again. It was fun. The whole rental experience went very well.
Before I start, this excursion is for 2 people, so you dont have pay twice the money.It was probably the best excursion I arranged. Scooter was easy to drive and roads were easy to follow(for Canadians and Americans, make sure to know basic rules of round-abouts). The owner lady could speak good english so wasn't hard to communicate.. Sadly, there was no gas left in my scooter so I filled my own which bugged me even though it was 6 euros(barely finished even 1/10 of it). For cruisers, there are two port areas. Sadly Royal Caribbean landed on the port which is good 30 mins walk to this place so we took a cab in the morning($10). However the owner was kind enough to give us ride back to our ship port in evening. Tips-
1. You don't need to fill too much gas
2. Go to Iletas beach for sure
3. Parking is free for Scooters
4. This excursion is for 2 people
5. Don't hesistate to ask people about directions as they are friendly
6. Eat your lunch in the main market near the big cathedral which looks like Ra Lamblas of Barcelona.
7. Sometimes the cabinet under the seat doesn't open so highly recommened to keep your passports or papers with you incase you are running late to your cruise.
8. Drive slow near the round-abouts
We never took the Scooters. Did not have enough time to do so. Finally made it to the location to hear the person doing a hard pitch for the insurance.....not good. Just walked out.
