The scooter is easy at the PV airport, as there is lots of walking to do. Taxis in PV are very easy to get and the scooter fits easily into any car trunk. The roads are rough cobblestone, the sidewalks are OK, depending on where you are. We took the taxi to and from the Malecon, where the sidewalks were very wide and easy for the scooter. I did not need to use the scooter at the resort, as it was smaller and so I managed walking. This was our trial run for the scooter in Mexico. We did not do any excursions this time, as many have walking on rough terrain. Many years ago, we did the excursions, when we could walk the terrain.
I am inserting a photo of me on the scooter on the Malecon.
Hi Shawn and Tanya. We’re back from our cruise And what a time it was. On the previous cruise I had to push Pat on her walker to get any where quickly but Smartscoot changed all that. Pat had freedom of the ship. At check in we boarded quickly as we did not have to wait for someone with a wheel chair to board us. With the wheels set in it easily went into the cabin. When we went ashore in Lahaina the crew just pick it up and put it on the tender. When we were on shore I widened the wheel stance and we explored Lahaina in luxury. We did have one small problem. We were stopped often to answer questions about Smartscoot. So we let several people try it and gave out about 15 of your business cards. We most heartily recommend you folks and Smartscoot. Thanks for making Pat’s life so much better.
Happy New Year!
I checked before we started the cruise on Royal Caribbean and found out all there cabin doors were a minimum of 24 inches. So, on the narrowest axle setting I never had a problem fitting through any doorway.
The cabins are not that big but it wasn’t a problem fitting the scooter in with us.
It was great experience boarding with the Smartscoot. The cruise line treated me as if I was in a wheelchair and I was able take the shortcuts that are available to the handicapped. They were helpful on embarkation and debarkation. At the ports of call the ramp was pretty steep but I was able to negotiate them. Sometimes with a little assistance.
I was able to keep up with my family with the Smartscoot and my youngest granddaughter loved to ride with me.

My SmartScoot is the best investment I’ve ever made. Recent health conditions have me unable to walk due to complications of diabtetes.
As a young person, I hate missing out on life. One of the biggest things was taking my dog outside and now that I have my Smartscoot I can go anywhere and best of all my dog can come with me!
It’s giving me my sense of independence back not having to ask people to do things for me.
My insurance company paid for the majority of my scooter and aside from getting my drivers license 20 years ago this is the next best day of my life…. getting my scooter. Thanks Tanya & Shawn for introducing me to my scooter, it really is life changing!
By the way, all the photos I sent you were taken
We had the scooter in Waterton last weekend and it was great. We spent the whole morning wandering the town together. We were at a family picnic and the grandkids thought it was the most exciting thing. Jim had a hard time getting it back from our 9-year old grandson!
Now my husband is thinking we need a trip to Vancouver so he can have scooter races with my sister who is expecting delivery of her scooter today.
We would be happy to show the scooter to someone in our area who would like to know more.
Greetings from Palm Springs We’ve been here for a couple of months and have experienced some less than favourable weather, but I gather BC has been having its share of lousy weather, so we can’t complain! Palm Springs has been our “explore” list for years…. Must be wonderful- Glad you’re escaping the drizzle, we love Canada don’t get me wrong but the winters… Hmmm… That Vitamin D makes such a difference doesn’t it?
I just wanted to let you know how much I have been enjoying my SmartScoot. I’ve been using it constantly – dog walks with Laura, shopping, sightseeing, at a PGA golf tournament, etc – (** I wonder how many comments you would have had if pulling a golf bag eh?)and just loving how much freedom I have with the scooter. Lots of pep, great manouverabiity, and good battery life – couldn’t ask for more!
Thank you for the lovely Thank You card – but it should have been me that first sent one to you for giving me the freedom of movement that I now have whenever I venture out to go to the mall or to an arena to see a Lacrosse or Hockey game.
The Smartscoot is a wonderful piece of equipment that was certainly designed for a guy like me that used to be so mobile I never thought I’d be as restricted with movement as I am now – no – sorry, I should have said – “As I was before I was introduced to the Smartscoot” – a perfect name by the way!
Just a note to tell you how much I’ve enjoyed my Smart Scoot, especially since I moved into Fleetwood Villa, a retirement home, at the beginning of August. Fleetwood is a beautiful neighborhood with quiet treed streets and parks. I’ve rarely used it for shopping but I’ve discovered that my little dog Tilley, who loves to run, really enjoys it when she has a good run alongside me on my scooter. Until the darkness and daylight sing time ended, we were out almost every evening after dinner. Now it’s not only getting dark early but it’s often cold and wet. I’ve also taken it to Guildford Mall and for the first time ever was able to fully explore the entire mall to see what’s really there
