Walking or Golf Cart rental?

Staying for 2.5 days/2 nights in Contadora later in May. Couldn't really find consistent information on golf cart rentals. I'm a heavy walker/hiker in general, so I don't see it as much of a need except to minimize travel time around the island. What is the general going price for rentals and where are they found (does every inn price them differently for their guests? I've seen some people say $30/day, some say $70/day, etc..). Just looking for others opinions...

Island is a easy walk. But, yes golf carts are available to rent from either The Point Resort or Geralds.

2-hour rental is something around $40 an all-day rental is $90

Some hotels include a "mule" in the price, other give a special price with a rental. It takes about 20 minutes to walk from one end to another and maybe 5 to 10 minute walk across. We rented because of the extreme heat. Its quicker and cooler renting a cart. You will have fun exploring the island. We rented for 24 hours then walked the rest of the time. You're okay either way. Our rental was $45 through Casa del Sol. At the air landing strip they were more than double that. Most likely your hotel will pick you & your luggage up upon arrival...

I am also an eager walker, so did not even think about renting a golf cart, BUT the heat here (April 2017) is excruciating. The 20 min walk during peak sun (11-4) feels like hell. If you are fair skinned, get a golf cart, or you will suffer from a heat stroke like I do now. The cost is $65-85 per day. There are no ATMs on Contadora, so bring cash. There is no other way to get around but personal golf cart or walk, water is sold by the Mercado at landing port. if you are out of water and live far from the Mercado, you are out of luck. Hope this saves you from heat stroke
