    We were very satisfied with America Car rental. I made a reservation for 2 weeks rental in july. We were picked up from the airport. In 15 min we were at the office of America car rental. Our car was not yet there. We got a free upgrade. Car was perfect. All procedures went easy. The only thing is that you think that everything is insured and then...

  • Colectivos

    Playa del Carmen Transportation

    If you want to visit Tulum or Cancun from Playa, you can take a colectivo which is a small minibus. There is no schedule, they leave when they are full. It's 30 pesos to Tulum, 20 to Puerto Aventuras or Cenotes. They leave from Calle 2 between 15 & 20, across from the park. If you are hungry before or after your trip, see my recommendation for a...

    Isla Cozumel Transportation

    After going through the duty free at the docks, we found car rental agencies and a taxi stand, we decided not to rent a car or scooter this time and instead took a taxi. The taxi rates were posted on a board to various spots around the island, downtown was $7, the beaches were $8-$20 for the most southern tip of Cozumel. On the return trip, confirm...

    The Great Parnassusò Hotel is located at the distance about 4km from the downtown part of which is known as "El Centro". I used to walk there but preferred to come back by bus. There is a public transit bus system, servicing the hotel zone. It seemed extremely cheap for me. You can watch my 3 min 29 sec Video Cancun Walk along the Hotel's Area ...

    If you like your Taxi driver, get his phone number so you can call him when ever you need him. This way you are familiar with who you will be dealing with. I do not recommend a rent a car because you most likely will get charged an outrageous amount for gas. NEVER travel alone... Always travel in groups around their. Never use your credit card if...

    Some of the visitors of Cozumel that we had seen rented motorbikes. This is a great way to see the beaches in Cozumel. It is nice because not only it is cheaper than renting a jeep, it is also economical on gas. Make sure to request for helmets and put them the right way to protect your head. Also, wear shoes when you are driving for flexibility...

    Cancún Transportation

    When departing the Cancun airport the first thing to remember is not to stop for anyone until you are outside where the vans and cabs are awaiting travelers to take you to your hotel. As soon as you are on your way past customs there will be people asking you where you are staying. They will say they have been waiting for you and will then escort...

    Playa del Carmen Transportation

    The central bus station is situated on Fifth Avenue close to the Main Plaza and ferry pier. It's here you can catch frequent buses to the airport and to Cancun. Regular buses also depart here to many of the nearby tourist attractions such as Tulum, Chichen Itza and Coba. These can provide a cheaper alternative to going on an organised tour.

    Cancún Transportation

    Well... I must confess that when we saw the bus that would take us to Xcaret, I hesitated - it seemed a prehistoric vehicle, and I was afraid that we could end collecting pieces along the road. No way! It was a good bus, comfortable, with air-conditioned, and the trip was safe and quick. No need to use the car|

  • Ferry

    Isla Cozumel Transportation

    If you are already in Cancun, one easy way to get to Coz is by passenger ferry from Playa del Carmen (a half-hour ride from Cancun). This is a good option if you are visiting Cancun first, or if your air ticket is way more expensive if you add the extra segment to your itinerary to get to Coz. The trip takes about 30 minutes and costs less than $10...

    If you want to get to the surrounding islands like Isla Mujeres and Cozumel take a ferry. There are several departure points from the hotel zone. We used the Garrafon ferry from El Embarcadero (Blvd Kukulkan 4.5 km). You can purchase your ferry tickets at any pier ticket counter. The ride to Isla Mujeres averages 25 minutes and the ride to Cozumel...

    Isla Cozumel Transportation

    Since Cozumel is an island, there are two ways to get there - by air and by boat. The International airport is about 5 miles northeast of San Miguel which is the main town on Cozumel. I took a little puddle jumper from Cancun. I got a free ticket on Delta to anywhere in North America by taking a voluntary bump. Almost all the flights (BWI to...

    Cancún Transportation

    The carriage ride around the resort is really nice. You get a chance to tour the entire resort in the comfort of a horse drawn carriage. I love carriage rides so I of course enjoyed this. I would recommend this for newly weds, or couples down for a vacation. This can be a really romantic experience during the evening hours, or just a trip around...

    Isla Cozumel Transportation

    We took a scuba tour and a tour bus drove us to the ferry that got us to Cozumel. It was very convenient not to drive and enjoy the coach bus, however, we had to be back at a certain time, which was a petty. The island turned out to be very interesting - there was much to see and browse around after all the scuba diving was done. Hence, I would...

    Getting around the moon palace is quite easy with the help of a trusted golf cart. Every morning I got up David and I called for a golf cart, and that took us all around the resort. We rode those to the pool, to the restaurants, and to the main lobby where most of the stuff is located. The drivers were really nice, and they loved to talk to you in...

  • Walk

    Isla Cozumel Transportation

    Walking around the shopping areas of Cozumel is definitely an option. During our visit in April 2011 we did some walking around town and the beach. We did though take a cab to town since we were unsure of the distance from the cruise port and it was ungodly hot outside with temperatures in the 90's with blaring sun.

  • Scuba Boats

    Isla Cozumel Transportation

    Most of the scuba diving that is done from Cozumel is done from small boats. Some dive shops in town pick up at the town pier. Papa Hogs is out on the road to the cruise ship docks, and you can leave from there. Leaving early and taking a small fast boat means that you get to the dive sites before the big 'cattle boats' that leave later. You can...

    The highway between Cancun and Merida is the fastest way between those two towns. It is -long, -boring - there is nothing but jungle on both sides, -expensive - even if you make your $$$ outside of Mexico-safe - the opposite direction lines are separated from you with pretty dense jungle so no worry about head on collision. There are some local...

    Traveling by colectivo is by far the best deal offered on the Riviera Maya. For 20 pesos or US$2.00 (both currencies are accepted) you can travel anywhere along Highway 307 between Tulum and Playa del Carmen. If you're staying at a big resort, you'll see colectivos waiting at the main entrance (on the highway). All you have to do is tell them where...

I found these tips helpful if not life saving:1) If someone wants to pass you must pull over on the shoulder.2) If you don't pull over to the shoulder the person still has the option of pulling into the oncoming traffic...

    Mexico is a very big country, and if you plan to do a lot of travelling you should consider taking a plane at least once.
