Car Rental Cancun Tips: The Ultimate Guide

Guest post by

Cancun is a city in Mexico located on the Yucatan Peninsula bordering the Caribbean Sea and is known for its beaches of vibrant colors, numerous resorts and nightlife. It consists of 2 distinct areas: the more traditional downtown area and the Hotel Zone, the coastal strip with high-rise hotels, nightclubs, shops and restaurants. 

 

Cancun is also a popular destination among students during the spring break period. Cancun is one of the favorite destinations to visit on the vacations, the atmosphere of party and adventure and the quality of its people, is a destination that will undoubtedly allow you to enjoy every moment of your vacation in Cancun. Rent a car in Cancun with City Car Rental will allow you to visit each of the tourist attractions that this wonderful city has to offer, as well as enjoy the recreational activities and discover the Mayan ruins that are located in the surroundings of the town at your own pace.

 

Transportation from Cancun airport to Playa del Carmen

Playa del Carmen is a Mexican coastal resort located along the Caribbean coast of the Riviera Maya, in the Yucatan Peninsula. It belongs to the state of Quintana Roo and is famous for its palm-lined beaches and coral reefs.

The distance between Cancun and Playa del Carmen is 68 kilometers, it takes about 1 hour 15 minutes. The pedestrian Fifth Avenue runs parallel to the beach, with blocks of shops, restaurants and nightclubs ranging from relaxed bars to dance clubs. If you want to spend your vacation in Playa del Carmen, you will notice that the main attractions are distributed around the city and it will be necessary to rent a car in Cancun, but If your plans are for relaxation and fun, and feel like driving on your own it's not an option, you should try hiring transportation from Cancun airport to Playa del Carmen visit the beautiful beaches of the city.

 

Playa Mamitas, Espiritu Santo Beach, Emerald Beach, and Fundadores Beach are some of the places where you can enjoy the turquoise colors of the water, feel the light-colored sand between your toes.

Calle 12 is another of the city's most famous tourist attractions, just a few blocks from Fifth Avenue, where you can enjoy the nightlife in a different way and with a wholly Caribbean and tropical air. Some of the bars and nightclubs you will find at Calle 12 are Mandala, Coco Maya, Coco Bongo, La Vaquita, and Palazzo; these nightclubs are the best known for the utterly energetic atmosphere of party and fun they offer.

Xcaret is an ecological park that offers you rest and coexistence with the diverse nature provided by the Mayan jungle. If you visit Xcaret you will also enjoy beautiful landscapes and unforgettable moments here. This place is located 6 kilometers from the city.

As you can see many of the most popular tourist attractions are located on the outskirts of the city, so Car Rental Cancun allows you to manage and enjoy each of them at your own pace, without being tied to public transportation schedules. However hiring Cancun Airport Transportation could also being an option to move around the town or simply to get to your hotel from the Airport, just remember that taking regular public transportation will be more complex than booking Cancun airport transfers, because this kind of service can often be uncomfortable for you or your family, as many times you may have problems when traveling with suitcases or large groups.
