Is it easy to find parking if you rent a golf cart ?

Hi,

We are planning to rent a golf cart for the day to tour the island but I was wondering if it is easy to find parking spot near the tourist attractions (Playa Norte, Punta Sur, Cemetery, etc...).

Would it be cheaper and easier to use taxis ? (How much for a taxi from the ferry to Punta Sur ?)

Thanks

Yes, easy to find parking.

Taxis - cheaper but less fun!! We usually have a golf cart day or 2 and use taxis for other trips.

Golf cart parking is really no problem- just be sure to not leave anything valuable in the cubbies of the cart.

It would be cheaper to hail a taxi, but probably more time consuming if you are looking to go to Punta Sur as well as Playa Norte.

If you are just going for the day, a golf cart is an enjoyable experience and it affords you the flexibility to pull over wherever and whenever you want. You will be able to see the entire island at your leisure. Worth the extra $ IMO.

Not only that, but feeling the ocean breeze in your face from the cart is quite nice. Enjoy!

Taxi to Punta Sur is 88 pesos one way from the ferry. In general, it's cheaper to take taxis but as Jetskigirl pointed out, how much fun is that? We always rent a golf cart and just count that as part of our vacation expense. Parking is available on the street right outside the cemetery, also along the sand road by Privilege Aluxes to Playa Norte. Or just make a left on Hidalgo from Mateo Lopez and park there then walk to the beach. Lots of parking options for the beaches. Punta Sur has a big lot. So just get a cart and have fun :)

I am going to be the lone wolf here and say that it isn't always that easy to park in Centro, depending on the time of year you are there and the time of day. Much of the street parking on Medina is now gone so if you have a cart and want to eat along the waterfront, it can be tough finding a spot.

Parking in low season generally isn't a problem. Parking at Christmas, Easter and at times during high season (January through March) may be a bit more difficult.

Having said that, we still tend to rent a cart for most trips.

Now that you mention it, I haven't rented a cart in high season. I try to avoid crowds on Isla. I like to pretend only a few of us know about ;)
