I will be staying at Capella Ixtapa the first weekend in September and was planning on renting a car since Capella is a little off the beaten path. Renting from Thrifty for the 5 days I will be there is only $32 total so about $7 USD a day which would be much cheaper than taking taxis to and from town. I'm thinking even if we just use the car once and for the drive to and from the ZIH airport we're still coming out ahead rather than paying for a taxi! After reading several negative post about renting cars, I'm a little concerned though. Can I get some advice about the safety of driving, parking, travel times, added fees from rental agencies, etc so I can make the best decision?
