Extra night in Cancun area

Jump to last reply

In July my husband and I are staying in Playa del Carmen for a week with our toddler (he'll be ~1.5 years). Our all-inclusive week (courtesy our family) ends the day BEFORE we leave, so we have one extra night. We're flying out of Cancun on a 9:30am flight.

We initially had planned to make the trek to Chichen Itza, but it seems like people suggest it's too far and too hot for traveling with a kid.

We tend to be off-the-beaten-path travelers but given our son and the free hotel room, we're doing the all-inclusive for the bulk of our trip. My husband and I have traveled quite a bit in Latin America (Peru, Guatemala, Honduras, Costa Rica) but this is our first trip to Mexico.

1) Does anyone have suggestions for what we should do with our extra night? Anywhere neat to stay that still means we can get to the airport in the morning (either traveling Playa del Carmen to destination to Cancun in one day OR leaving for Cancun the morning of the flight)?

2) Do people suggest renting a car or taking shuttles (esp with a toddler)? I am hearing mixed advice. I've driven in Costa Rica without any problems but would not have wanted to drive in Guatemala, if that helps at all. We're planning to bring a car seat from home either way.

Thank you!!!
