Moving to Las Terrenas

As I plan to be there for 6 months, was wondering if I should bring my bicycle as a mode of transportation? Any thoughts?

Having a bike never hurts but be VERY careful about riding here as the drivers are nuts and not much respect for the rules of the road

All good advice but riding a bike here no matter what precautions you take is dangerous at best.

Agreed.

Thanks, I appreciate your input.

You are welcome and good luck

I just returned from 10 days in Las Terrenas, most of that time spent in El Centro.  I only saw a couple of bicycles, and those were being ridden by kids on the sidewalk.  I would spend some time there, seeing the streets and the driving, before deciding if you want to ride around town.

In most places I would not ride a bicycle!

Only thing more dangerous on the road than a moto is a bike.
