Default Recomendations to rent a scooter in Nassau
My cruise anchored for a day in Nassau. I was wondering if it's worth to rent a scooter to tour around the island, and also for those who have had the experience, any recommendation? How much does it cost?

I've rented on in Nassau many, many years ago and I can't remember what I paid but in general the condition of most scooters on the Caribbean islands aren't the best. Usually the tires are getting bald, the brakes pull unevenly & the steering is racked from numerous crashes. So check over the bike very carefully before leaving the shop/stand and make note of any existing damage.
I always take many photo's of ALL damage so they can't claim that you've did it when returning. Sometimes I'll take 20 or 30 photo's - close up's & all angles.
All that being said, there are more scenic islands besides Nassau to rent a bike as there isn't much to see on that island anyway but it is a fun way to tour if only to go to some of the beaches.
