>>>> "can you rent scooters in aruba?"
Are there many rental places - NO.
Is it safe like Bermuda - NO.
Why - The roads in Aruba are not always the best. Car and truck traffic go rather fast. Just not safe to drive a scooter.
To rent one: Go to What To Do, Then Getting Around.

Road surfaces have never been a #1 priority in the 12 years that we've been traveling to Aruba. One pot hole, which you will have no trouble finding, and it is head over heels over the handle bars and it is all over. . . and maybe not just the vacation...
Having said this, if you are still interested here is some info:

Not to mention the sand on roads. A freiend of ours found out the hard way when they were in Aruba. Took a turn and just slid, the salt water had is toll on her for the rest of her vacation. So if you do, be careful.
taking your life in your own hands, rent a car,then be careful, I remember back in 1970 or 71 two couples were run over and killed by the same truck. its not worth it. also know a girl that was killed in the Caymans, and they lose em all the time in Cosumel. but of course I'm not too smart cause I ride my motorcycle to work everyday here in China.
I would have to agree, no scooters, just too dangerous , but you WILL see them. Admittedly we just rode ATV's on the road and you can see each and every pothole. The roads in Aruba have never been kept up as well as they should. I at least felt safe on an ATV knowing I had 4 wheels below me.
