Should I Rent a Car or Use a Cab in Mexico

There are pros and cons to driving in Mexico. Mexico will allow you to drive with your valid America drivers license.

If you do rent a car, purchase the insurance that is offered from the rental company, unless you are driving in your own car. Drive very carefully, there seems to be a lot of people speeding, tailgating and generally driving badly. Unless you drive like a cab driver, you may be out of your league here. Another thing to consider is that the roads are in disrepair. A lot of pot holes, unmarked lanes and broken traffic signals. The convenience of taking yourself wherever you want to go is hampered by the many drawbacks of driving in Mexico.

If you choose to take a taxi everywhere you go, you will find that it is very inexpensive. It is so cheap that you will think you have your own chauffeur. Of course, you will still have to deal with bad driving, but at least you can ask your driver to slow down. The biggest benefit is that your driver will know everywhere you want to go and he can make suggestions for you.

Using a taxi is definitely the best way to go in Mexico, whether it is in Acapulco, Cancun or Cabo San Lucas, it is the most convenient and least expensive option.
