Renting a car is by far the easiest and cheapest way to get around Yucatan. Plus, we could arrange our visits to avoid crowds at popular sites ie. archaeological sites and cenotes

We had three adults and three kids, a buggy, three large suitcases and 5 backpacks and the car could handle it all. We needed the car for both town and off road driving and it was perfect. Spent two weeks with it and would highly recommend

We went to lots of places we wouldn't have been able to without a car. We went snorkelling with turtles. Snorkelling over the reef. Visited Chichen Itza and got to loads of restaurants out of town. It paid for itself in taxi fares alone.

Great car to drive, easy to handle and good fuel efficiency. Just be warned about traffic police in Mexico- if they stop you and ask for your passport or driving license, do not give it to them and insist on accompanying them to the station for formal charge or payment if there has been a transgression - often they’re just stopping tourists and looking for bribes. We got stopped on a quiet backroad in cancun on our way to the hotel the first night we arrived. The police man pulled us over and claimed we were travelling too fast (we were not), and took 2000 Mexican Pesos as payment to return my driving license and let us go. Nothing to do with the rental company of course, just general advice to tourists driving in Mexico!
