Cozumel Transporation - Mopeds - Inside Scoop
Looking for the Perfect Costume?
Be Careful!! The danger of using mopeds on Cozumel cannot be overstated.

The moped rental agencies in Cozumel are, for the most part, located in the downtown area, in hotel lobbies or streetside around the cruise ship piers so finding mopeds rentals should not be an issue. However, with the increasing number of mopeds, pedestrians, bicycles and cars on Cozumel's narrow streets it is becoming very dangerous to ride mopeds around the island especially for those not familiar with traffic flow and streets.

In fact, mopeds have become so dangerous that one of Cozumel's long time expats, Sally Hurwitch, regularly posts on the BB's her Top Ten List and Cozumel Insider is pleased to present it here with Sally's permission ~

Sally's Top Ten Reasons to Pass on Renting a Moped in Cozumel

day people are "scraped up" off the roads of Cozumel as a result of a moped accident. Some only suffer some road rash, which is bad enough to ruin a vacation. Others go home in a box.

Always Wear a Helmet! 10. Taxi drivers trying to get as many people to as many destinations per hour as possible.
9. Mopeds do not have the power to accelerate out of a potentially dangerous situation.
8. Roads have occasional patches of gravel for no reason.
7. There are other tourists on scooters who don't know how to drive them.
6. Scooters have a short wheel base which makes them difficult to maneuver.
5. There are other tourists in rental cars who have just been to Carlos 'n' Charlie's.
4. Beautiful vistas take your breath away, as well as your attention off the road.
3. Most roads are one way, except when they're not.
2. Moped brakes are not always reliable.
1. Most north-south roads have the right-of-way.....with some exceptions.


Get the picture?
So spend a little extra, surround yourself with metal and rent a car!

Be very careful of your surroundings if you choose to rent one, and by all means wear a helmet!
IT'S THE LAW!


After an afternoon thunderstorm, the lack of drainage in the streets coupled with the oil on the streets creates a very slick road.†Itís not advisable to ride a moped during these conditions.
