Default NOT GETTING INFORMATION...HELP

All I want to know is whether I can rent a scooter or motorcycle in Acapulco, Mazatlan or Puerto Villarta near the port...that's all, nothing big deal...someone must have been there and seen signs or adds or actual bikes...please lemme know.....

For sure there will be rentals available in all those ports. However, I don't know how safe it will be riding them in Mazatlan or Acapulco. Cabo, being smaller, should be safer.

Key, I would underscore again what Kuki said.

The streets are *crazy* in Acapulco, and Mazatlan was not much better.

Cabo seems to be a lot tamer. (Oh, and I have said many a prayer when driving back to the PV terminal)

I ride about 15K miles a year on my BMW...everywhere. I rode a small 250 down in Mexico last winter...Puerto Penasco...no problem...just give the idiots the right of way...I used to ride in NYC too...the Lincoln tunnel was the pits...the carbon monoxide was sickening...sholdn't be a problem...I just can't think of an easier way to see a lot and have the freedom to come and go as I please. I'd LIKE to rent an R1100RT like I have at home!

Thanks...

Keylime I have been to all ports exc Acapulco. Yes you can rent these items. We drove around in both PV and Mazatlan. They are both crazy so follow your signs carefully. WE had a blast because in Maz we rented a "Zini". It's like a fast street legal golf cart, very cool looking and a blast to drive. My husband and brother in law loved driving them and the locals could not get over these little things. We drove all over Maz. They were parked right there when we got off the ship. At the time (last Feb) they only had 2 and you had to act fast to get them. We got a full day rental for $60 each. These things could park anywhere and used very little gas. It was great fun.
