  On the road to Carate outside Puerto Jimenez

Puerto Jimenez

The cheapest way to get around is of course on bike. It's hot and large part of the roads aren't shaded, so plan lot of sunscreen and water. But it's very fun to ride along the roads near Puerto Jimenez.

We rented nicely kept mountain bikes for 1$/hour near the italian restaurant in town. Close to the collectivo stop. Probably 2 blocks north of the church, 1 block west of the main street. Mine had a basket in front and they even threw in for free a lock. Very friendly and affable service.

When we were there a new shop had just opened. They rent VTT and bike. I hate them because VTT are very noisy in this town that was so quiet before. But maybe it's fun to rent. And they must be new, they opened in february 2006. Near the Internet Cafe Cafenet on the main street. Don't know if they are good...
