It is hard to choose a type of service when you don´t exactly know what are going to be your needs for the holidays. If it is the first time that you visit Mexico and Riviera Maya, you must be probably considering the idea of renting a car. Or maybe hiring private transportation, but you are uncertain of the best option for you. The answer is both options are good, but we will help you choose the one that suits your needs better. The transportation during your holidays is basic to enjoy a relaxing and stress-free time in Riviera Maya. At the end it will save you lots of time and money and will help you explore around in a practical way.
The number of people in your party is one of the things to consider when choosing a type of transportation. If you are visiting the area with a large group of people, it might be easier and stress-free to arrange private airport transportation. Then for day trips, rely on private local drivers to take you out and explore around. There is also a car rental company that offers large vans for groups, but these vans should be booked with enough months in advance to guarantee availability. EasyWay Car Rental has tons of experience, has provided a great service before for our travelers and offers delivery and drop off at your vacation home. The variety of vans they provide are good for parties of 10, 12 and 15 passengers.
There are many car rental companies in Cancun and Riviera Maya, but some of them are better than the rest. Great service is important, a good rate and experience. Like we have mentioned in the past, these are the details to keep in mind when renting a car in Riviera Maya:
For couples and groups of up to 7 people we usually recommend to rent a car and request delivery and drop off at Cancun airport. It will give you the option to stop for groceries on the way to your vacation home. And you will have the car available since day one. By requesting the delivery and drop off at the airport, you also save money on separate airport transportation. Fiesta Car Rental and Isis Car Rental are two local companies we highly recommend. They have been providing amazing service to our travelers and they allow us to make a reservation on their behalf. The service is more personalized and since we have them basically on speed dial we can request their service in case of an emergency. They also provide final rates which avoids misunderstandings and mistakes when quoting.
For some travelers the access to restaurants and stores are easier if their vacation home is at any of the main towns in Riviera Maya. Properties at Puerto Morelos, Playa del Carmen, Playacar, Akumal or Tulum have the options in walking distances. But for travelers staying at less crowded locations it might be challenging to explore, especially if they travel with kids. In these cases we recommend renting a car, it can be as practical and affordable as a manual compact car. Or for larger families, a bigger car like Jeep Patriot, Aveo or Minivans.
