  Keep your vacation like this, not the hospital
by peterd1331
 
 

There are many comon senseical reasons not to rent scooters on Marco Island:
- The roads are narrow, dangerous and are opposite for Americans
- They are not always as reliable as you would hope
- There are too many stupid tourists who are bad driver renting them already
- They are rip-offs
- The busses are cheap!
- Walking is nice
- There are even bike paths - rent bikes!

Unique Suggestions: - Be very careful
- Drive slowly
- WEAR A HELMET
- Keep tank as full as possible
- Lock it up at night
- Enjoy anyway, but be careful and alert!

Fun Alternatives: You should either :
- Invest in the bus system (very cheap)
- Rent a bike
- Walk as much as possible and take busses when necessary
- Take taxies (a little expensive, but they will also priovide tours of the island if you ask for a good price)
