hiring a car in Tulum in December

We are staying in Tulum and then want to drive to Chichen Itza where we have accomodation booked for 2 nights and then on to Rio Lagartos for two nights and on to Cancun to catch a flight to LA. Does anyone know how easy and safe it is to hire a car in Tulum for this trip? Also, is it easy to pick the car up in Tulum but drop it off in cancun? Are there stiff penalty fees for this in Mexico?

There are plenty of options for renting a car as most of the major agencies and many local ones, are here in Mexico and of course they have offices in Tulum. As for safety, you will be fine - look over the vehicle, have a contact number in case of any difficulties, get a cell phone at an OXXO convenience store for about 30 dollars and obey all speed limits. There is nothing like the freedom of driving when traveling and you will have a great time!

Agree, its by far the best way to explore. If you want to pick up in Tulum and drop in Cancun, it can be done but check the drop charges carefully. One company with low charges for doing this and a good reputation is Easy Way Car Rental.
