Advice Needed for Playa Del Carmen/Cancun

Jump to last reply

Hi - We will be traveling as a family (2 adults, kids 13 & 15) for the first time to Playa Del Carmen for December break. We are staying in Playa Del Carmen Saturday to Saturday but arrive in Cancun on Friday.

1. Should we stay in Cancun for the night to get flavor of it or go straight to Playa and get a room there?

2. In Playa, we will want to eat in town almost every night and don't mind the 15 minute ride to town. Should we take a cab or rent a car? We usually rent a car (St. John, TCI) but are just a little unsure of the safety of foreigners driving in Mexico.

I would appreciate any advice you can offer.

Thanks!
