Renting a car in Playa del Carmen?

I am spendig a week in a time share condo near Play del Carmen. We want to have our own transportation. Does anyone have any advice? I know I have to get the extra insurance.


my travel agent says DON'T do it. But if you insist, read up on the driving rules and laws. They are not the same as in the U.S.

Based on personal experience, be careful when renting a car. Insist to check the car carefully and ask that every detail is written down. Prevent being charged for damage that has been done by you. When driving, follow the signs strictly. Police is just waiting to catch someone not respeting a particular rule. If you get stopped by police don't pay anything, it may get more expensive. Receive the ticket and call the urgency number of your car rental office.
