  1. My family of 8 will be travelling to the mayan Rivera & staying at one the all inclusive resorts that is not within walking distance to any of the sites. The cost of “excursions” especially booked from the hotel is unreal. Ive tried to get my family onboard with car rental, but they are convinced that it’s not safe or not worth it. I want to see more than a resort. Please help

    1. Hi Steph!

      I have a couple of suggestions for you. Firstly, I don’t think there are any safety concerns with a car rental. While tourists do occasionally get pulled over, it’s rare. I wouldn’t recommend driving late at night, but other than that, I wouldn’t worry about renting a car. With a big group, you could rent one for just a day or two to hit some of the further away excursions, instead of renting it for the entire trip.

      Alternatively, you may be able to find more affordable tours if you book online. I’d check Get Your Guide, Viator, and Airbnb Experiences to see if anything looks appealing. For Viator and Get Your Guide, many of the tours include hotel pickups with the cost of the tour.

      Depending on what you’re interested in, you can probably do many of the excursions using public transportation. For instance, Chichen Itza can be accessed via ADO bus from Playa del Carmen.

      Finally, another convenient transportation option is hiring a taxi driver for the day. This works well for things like beach or cenote hopping. It might end up costing about the same amount as renting a car for the day, but a local driver will know exactly where to go. Just ask any taxi driver you encounter if they’d be willing to do this.

      I hope this helps!
