We did not book a rental car with Orbitz when we booked the trip, but the more hubby and I talk about what we want to do in and around the Akumel/Tulum/PDC area, the more we are leaning towards a car. I mean, the airport transfers alone almost equal what a car rental would cost (as we'd want to get a private tranfer w/ USA transfers to get there faster and not have to make so many stops).
I spoke with hubby about the perils of driving mentioned on the boards (police stops/bribes/etc) but he feels confident we would be fine (he is a safe, respectful driver). We just feel like a car would give us a lot of flexibility in planning our very limited time (just 5 nights)..
What do you think? What's your experience? My biggest hesitiation is based on my deep hope that we'll love CRT's beach so much we actually won't won't to leave and explore - and therefore waste the money on the car rental.
