Getting Around Mexico
Car rental in Mexico
Renting a car in Mexico is not as easy as it is in Europe or the States!
The price you see online is not the price you will pay!
Mexico (in general) does not accept liability insurance offered by foreign credit card providers UNLESS you have a written letter from the bank confirming you are specifically covered in Mexico (even then, they don't always accept that).
We always choose to rent with National now as they have messed us around the least!
Domestic travel in Mexico
Mexico is a very large country, so depending on where you want to travel to your method of travel may change:
If you're sticking to the Quintana Roo coast then ADO buses are a great option, they leave regularly from each of the main towns and are very cost effective.
You could alternatively Uber or book private transfers but this is costly.
If you're wanting to visit destinations across the country then flying is your best bet. There are several small domestic airlines which serve most of Mexico.
Alternatively, for a more cost effective method of travel there are numerous overnight bus companies which you can take to cross mountains and empty regions with journeys of 10+ hours!
